Today, we can do most things via the internet, but you might be wondering if this includes making a PPI claim.

The PPI deadline is fast approaching. The 29th August 2019 is the final day you can submit your claim to the bank for mis-sold PPI.

But, with 64 million PPI policies sold in the UK, millions of consumers may be unaware that they could be due a refund. We are encouraging people to make their claim as soon as possible. Thankfully, making a claim has never been so easy — even without the paperwork!

As a reputable PPI claims company, our simple online PPI claim form allows us to start your claim today. We’ll send you some paperwork to complete, but we can handle the rest. However, even if you choose to make a PPI claim yourself, the majority of banks have online forms you can complete.

There’s no excuse not to check. If you took out a credit card, mortgage or loan before 2010, you might have been mis-sold PPI without your knowledge or consent. In this post, we’ll show you how can make your PPI claim online before the impending deadline.

Which Banks Allow Online PPI Claims?

There are a number of banks that allow you to submit your PPI claim online. This makes it significantly easier for many people. However, you will still need to have all of your evidence to hand.

Most of the major banks let you make a claim online, including:

  • Natwest
  • Lloyds
  • HSBC
  • Barclays

If you claim PPI yourself, always check on the lender’s website whether you can submit the form online and what information you will need. Alternatively, most banks have a dedicated address you can send all PPI claims to.

Making an Online PPI Claim

Before starting an online PPI claim, you need to have the following vital pieces of information:

  • Full name of the policyholder (at the time you had PPI)
  • Your PPI policy number
  • Address at the time you had the policy and your current address
  • Your employment status at the time
  • Information about how the PPI policy was mis-sold to you

Before completing the online form, ensure you have this information. If you are not sure of the account details or your PPI policy number, you should first contact the bank or a claims company, which will be able to uncover it for you. Once you have this information, you can complete your online PPI claim.

Using a PPI Claims Company

If you don’t want to make your PPI claim yourself, a reputable PPI claims company can do it on your behalf. Much like an online claim, it all starts with completing an online form. However, this won’t require too much information — simply your name, address, contact number and how many PPI policies you believe you might have had.

For those who don’t know if they ever had PPI, this essential information allows a claims company to investigate whether PPI was ever added to a financial product.

If PPI is identified, the company can then contact the bank or lender for you. This includes following up with the bank to monitor the status of your claim and chasing it if a decision is not made within eight weeks. It really is that simple with a claims company.

Regardless of whether you decide to use a claims company, or do it yourself by submitting an online PPI claim, act now to ensure you make your case before the looming deadline.
