    PPI with Legal and General

    PPI with Legal and General 14th Dec 07 at 10:22 AM
    Hello fellow MSE.

    I wonder if any can offer someone who's not too clever with his finance's some help please?

    I've been looking over some direct debits going out of the family accounts, and came across a Legal and General one, that I had promsed the wife I'd look into about a year ago.

    To cut a long story short, it seems this is a PPI we took out in Feb of 2005.

    Now, I do remember writting a letter to Legal and General asking for this to be stopped.

    But, nothing happened, and I was too caught up with real life issues (birth of a new baby) to chase things up.

    now having had a look at Martins PPI post and read some interesting posts from people in the forums, I'm wondering if this is something we could make a claim on.

    After phoneing L&G this morning, it seems this PPI is in
    perpetuity (there words not ours).
    I asked them, why had I not received any letters or notifications over the last two years while this debit was taken. They responded, they do not contact the customer afterwards.

    I've cancelled the debit now over the phone, and asked for the T &C's to be sent to me. But, I was wondering, is this normal practice? Has anyone else been caught out by them? And is this worth pursuing?

    Thanks

    Is it PPI or is it accident, sickness and unemployment cover?

    If the latter, then L&G are correct in that it is your responsbility to cancel it if you no longer need it. You should have cancelled the direct debit too.

    Thanks for you reply, I think it is accident, unemployment cover.

    Hopefully the phone call this morning will cancel it. But I will write to them again anyway.


    Still, I will try and see if I can claim back for this past years payments.

    Dont think you will get lucky on that front unless you can prove you sent a cancellation in.

    ASU is not PPI and doesnt have the same issues for claiming back.
