PPI Claims for Deceased Persons

Deceased Persons

If a PPI policyholder is deceased, any money owed to them becomes part of their estate, so whoever inherits the estate is entitled to make a PPI reclaim. This can be done by an executor or the person appointed to carry out their wishes after death. We automatically assume that reclaiming mis-sold Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) for deceased parents and grandparents may not be possible due to the passage of time.

However, the truth of the matter is it is quite straight forward to make a successful claim for mis-sold PPI for someone who is deceased.

Armed Forces Personnel & PPI

Armed Forces PPI

Armed forces personnel have cover for sickness, accident & unemployment built into their salaries.

So any PPI insurance policies would NOT have been appropriate. To find out if you can reclaim for mis-sold PPI, start a FREE PPI check** with us today.

Public Sector Workers PPI Claim

Public Sector PPI

For many public sector workers, the Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) they were sold was useless. However, for some of these workers it would not have been useless, depending on the policy type and cover it provided them with.
