    Plevin is only an issue if you were rejected, if you won your case you have already had all your money back so the commission is irrelevant

    What about complaints that were initially rejected then upheld in late 2015?
    Can someone explain what the FCA statement meant by that? Is there a different rule, or a specific date in 2015 for cases that were only upheld after it?

    As per previous statement, if you get a refund of your PPI there is nothing to come from Plevin, Plevin is only an issue if you were rejected AND there was commission as part of the PPI over 50% - you would not get any more money

    Hi all. I had a MPPI claim against Nationwide which was not upheld (which I still don't agree with!!) back in 2013. Can anyone advise of how I would go about making a new complaint based on the Plevin rule please.

    You dont make a new complaint. You contact them stating that they rejected your complaint in 2013 and that you have become aware of the FCA ruling regarding Plevin and would like them to review your case to see if a part refund applies.

    I wouldnt hold your breathe though. Most MPPI was less than 50% (typically between 17.5% and 37.5%). Single premium MPPI could be higher (above the 50% level) but Nationwide never retailed single premium MPPI. So, unless they were taking well above the norm when it comes to regular contribution MPPI, you would not expect a partial refund. By all means give it a try. So far, we have only had one post from someone with a case looked at with Plevin and that was card card PPI and we in the 30% range. So, no part refund made.

    I would just add here that the FCA is including profit share as well as commission in "Plevin" complaints.

    My reading of the rather lengthy and dry FCA policy statement is that MPPI policies tended to be low commission/high profit share, so this may change the landscape somewhat.

    Thank you for your help and and advice. I am a little nervous of how to approach this with Nationwide and what to say. Should I ask them to review the original case based on the Plevin ruling and for them investigate the commission and profit share element on this MPPI?
    OR
    Should I wait until more information has been released from the FCA?

    Many thanks

    The FCA issued its consultation nearly a year ago and its final ruling more recently was virtually unchanged from the initial proposals. So, information is not an issue.

    Just ask them to look at your case under the recent Plevin ruling from the FCA. A simple single sentence. Dont mention profit share as that is not something that applies here and not something you need to worry about.

    Plevin and PPI
    Does anyone know if I can start a fresh mis-selling claim based on the Plevin case?
    My claim was rejected due to time barring by Santander, however, they are still looking into it on the basis of Plevin.
    My understanding is that you only get one refund. The recent post on MSE states (On a £10,000 loan over five years, your 'Plevin' compensation would typically be £500 (if you're due all the PPI back for other mis-selling, you don't get both). that you only get one, but, this would appear to be unfair if you are rejected for getting PPI refund of thousands, and can only claim hundreds based on the Plevin based refunds. Surely mis-selling is mis-selling which ever form it takes, why should one refund path lead to thousands, and, another path lead to hundreds?

    No you can't. That is not what it is about.

    The timebar still stands. Plevin is a secondary consideration.

    My understanding is that you only get one refund.
    Or nothing. Plevin is not about refunding the premium. It only applies to rejected complaints (not those upheld) and only if the commission on the policy exceeded 50%. If it did, then the execess above the 50% is refunded. i.e. if the commission was 55% then you would get a 5% refund. If the commission was 23% then there would be no refund.

    Surely mis-selling is mis-selling which ever form it takes, why should one refund path lead to thousands, and, another path lead to hundreds?
    Plevin is not about mis-selling. It is about a recent court case and has a specific outcome.

    According to the FCA paper profit share on MPPI almost certainly will matter due to its low commission and high profit share nature. They don't need to mention it as hopefully the bank will consider it together with a commission complaint, but I don't think we can say it's irrelevant.

    It doesnt matter to the person making the complaint. It isnt something they need to raise. They just need to ask for it to be looked at under the Plevin ruling.

    Morning - An update for you. I contacted Nationwide and they have said that they will not investigate any Plevin ruling issue until August 2017. I then spoke to FOS who have said that as my MPPI only ran up to 2005 that Plevin would not be considered on this claim. They have said that they will only look at any MPPI Plevin issue if the MPPI ran past 2008.

    Thought this may be of interest to you, any comments appreciated

    The 2008 part of the ruling is going to significantly reduce the volume of payouts on this.

    This is a misunderstanding of how things work.

    PPI miss-selling means you should get a refund of anything you paid as part of that PPI (plus any interest that is applicable)

    The Plevin ruling is NOT miss-selling, it's an undeclared commission. Indeed, the whole point is that people affected were NOT miss-sold i.e. PPI was sold correctly, they were just poorly treated by the advisor. The issue with Plevin is not even about commission - it's about EXCESSIVE commission - any commission under 50% was perfectly fine and there is no issue with it at all. Plevin only applies in cases where there was more than 50% and so you get back the amount over 50%
