With money tight for many people at the moment, many of us are looking for ways to find some extra money. It can sometimes seem like this recession is never going to end and with salaries low and priced high, many people are trying to get hold of as much money as they possibly can, so that they can pay their bills. There are many things to try, in order to boost your income, but some people are ignoring something very obvious and that is making a PPI claim.
If you have borrowed money in the past, there is a chance that you may have been missold personal protection insurance or PPI. Some people may have chosen to take out this insurance, some of whom did not need it, and others may have not chosen to, but paid for it anyway. There were some people who were told they needed the insurance when they did not and others that had it put into their agreements without being told that it was there.
If this has happened to you, you may not have even realised it. You may have just thought that you were paying back the costs of the loan and not realised that you were also paying for this insurance as well. It is worth taking a look at the paperwork for the loan and seeing whether there is any mention of PPI or payment protection insurance. Even if you do not have the papers to hand, it could be that it could be looked in to for you.
Therefore it could be worth getting in touch with one of the PPI claims companies in order to find out whether you can make a claim. If it is found that you did buy PPI without realising it or when you did not need it, then you could find that you will be able to claim back the money that you paid. The amount will depend on what you paid, but it could make a significant difference to your income and help you out with paying some bills in this difficult time. There is nothing to be lost by making an enquiry and you could find that you are better off as a result. So why not get in touch with a company before it is too late and find out whether you are entitled to get some money back.
