PLEVIN PPI CHECK & RECLAIM SERVICE
A Plevin PPI claim is made for the commissions charged on the PPI or Payment Protection Insurance premiums that many millions took with loans, credit cards, mortgages & other forms of credit like store cards and catalogues. It’s called a Plevin PPI claim as a result of a landmark case that was brought about by Mrs. Susan Plevin and was based on the high level of commission charged by her lender with her PPI without being disclosed to her. The Supreme Court ruled that a lender's failure to disclose this large commission when PPI was sold can be defined as unfair under the Consumer Credit Act and became known as the Plevin ruling.
If you had PPI on a loan, credit card, store card, catalogue or mortgage and have not previously claimed for Mis-sold PPI or had your PPI claim rejected, you may be eligible to make a Plevin PPI Claim.

Plevin PPI Explained
Following the PPI deadline in August 2019 for making a Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) Claim directly with a business, many people have been talking about ‘Plevin PPI' or PPI 2 and how it could affect them.
Here we explain what is a Plevin PPI claim, how it differs from a Mis-sold PPI Claim, and what the eligibility criteria is to make a Claim under the Plevin ruling.
So, What is Plevin?
Plevin refers to a Supreme Court case from 2014. Mrs Plevin was sold a PPI policy to cover her secured Loan from Paragon Personal Finance Ltd. Mrs Plevin became aware that 71.8% of the premiums she had paid under her PPI policy were actually a commission payment to her Lender and she alleged that this was unfair. The Supreme Court agreed with Mrs Plevin, and ruled that the relationship was unfair due to the following:
- Not disclosing the commission payment; and
- The percentage of premium that was paid as commission.
You can read the full Plevin v Paragon judgement here.
What does this mean for others who may have had the same issue?
After the decision in the Plevin case, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) ruled that any amount of commission from PPI policies of over 50% should be refunded to borrowers due to the relationship being unfair.
It has been widely reported that, at the time the PPI policies were sold, Lenders were charging a high level of commission, and according to the Regulator the average commission was said to be 67%.
Please note : A 'Plevin' based PPI claim invariably requires the commencement of court proceedings against your Lender.
What's the difference between a Mis-sold PPI & a 'Plevin' based PPI claim?
The basis on which each of the claims is made are quite different. A mis-sold PPI claim looks into whether the PPI policy was suitable and circumstances under which it was sold, whereas a Plevin claim examines whether the Lender failed to disclose the high-level of commission they earned from the PPI premiums, rendering the relationship unfair.
Can I make a 'Plevin' PPI Claim after the Deadline?
Yes you can, as Plevin PPI Claims are not subject to the 2019 PPI deadline. This is because any claims based on the Plevin ruling are from a completely different area of law, namely the Consumer Credit Act 1974.
What is the Eligibility Criteria to Make a Plevin Claim?
You may be eligible to make a Plevin PPI Claim if:
- You have not previously complained about Mis-sold PPI
- Your PPI policy must have been sold before 6 April 2007 and open after 6 April 2008, or sold after 6 April 2007 (whether or not it was still open after 6 April 2007);
- You had your PPI Claim rejected ;or
were only refunded for the ‘Plevin only’ part of your PPI also known as a ‘tipping point offer’.
