The FCA advise people who think they have been mis-sold a pension to raise a complaint as soon as possible.
Countless savers who have lost financially from badly invested SIPPs – Self Invested Personal Pensions – could pocket a £50,000 windfall from a special government fund set up to compensate losers which is currently due to pay out a staggering £120 million.
A maximum £50,000 compensation is currently available from the £120 million fund managed by The Financial Service Compensation Scheme. But the figure is set to rise by 75 per cent to a £85,000 maximum next April (2019) to mirror the rapidly escalating number of losers throughout the UK.
The SIPP scams involved unscrupulous Financial Advisors preying on savers who were promised massive returns of up to 20 per cent a year only for their savings to be squandered on get rich quick schemes including investing in airport parking, holiday properties and green energy projects.
Retirement should be something to look forward to so you think that you have been wrongly advised don’t wait, contact us today. It costs nothing to find out if you are entitled to compensation.
Have you been advised to take out payment protection insurance on a loan or mortgage? Just having it now means you were almost certainly mis-sold, and are due compensation. That’s because a court ruling called Plevin means most who bought PPI even knowingly were likely to have been mis-sold thanks to commission paid t the agents.
When I took at my first loan for a car I was told that I couldn’t have it unless I took out PPI! I am sure that I was not the only person to be told this and the sale was invariably driven by commission.
The Plevin rules mean if over 50% of your PPI’s cost went as commission to the lender, and that wasn’t explained to you, you are due back the extra above that. For this to count your PPI had to still be active at some point since 2008.
Staggeringly, with loan PPI, on average 67% of what you paid was pocketed by banks as commission from insurers, and banks almost never mentioned it.
Since October 2017, banks have been told to adopt FCA guidance that followed a court ruling known as “Plevin” when dealing with PPI claims. Under the Plevin rule, if more than 50% of a consumer’s PPI’s payments went as commission and this was not explained to them at the time, they could claim back payments above that threshold, plus interest.
Following the Plevin ruling, claimants who had their original mis-selling claims turned down were able to go back to their loan provider and demand they be re-examined.
