Coronavirus impact on PPI claims

How do you think Coronavirus will affect PPI claims? It has already been predicated that the PPI claims will continue until at least the summer or even October 2020, however, do you think the Coronavirus will delay the situation even further? Or can PPI teams and DSAR teams continue to work as normal from home? Can they access data just like they can in the office?

    No effect whatever.
     PPI complaints ended forever several months ago, now only the very last are still being considered.  
    However, if too many Bank staff become ill then obviously there will be a further delay in decisions and payouts. 

    I'm amazed you personally haven't already had your final rejections. 

    I thought you decamped to other forums?

    The deadline to complain was several months ago, but the complaints are nowhere near over! There are many people who have complained to the FOS, and that process can take several months (especially if you ask your case to be reviewed again by an ombudsman). Hence why, some PPI staff with the big banks have had their contracts extended until October 2020

    You are going to be even more amazed with my recent PPI payout! £565.12 from an original PPI amount of £31.10! Just waiting until April to get the £50 odd back in tax. Not bad money hey?

    I’ve had a hiatus, Money, as I do happen to have a life and work. I’m open-minded and dismiss pessimists  (Hence the recent payout!) and search any website that benefits me and others ... I’ll leave you to it

    Could be. I’m off and we have a number of fellow case handlers in the same boat.
    helpful tips
    it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
    there - 'in or at that place'
    their - 'owned by them'
    they're - 'they are'
    it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)

    For people that already have PPI plans in force, then they should be covered.  However, for those looking to buy new PPI, they will probably find it is excluded in the short term as it is a known event.

    That's the direct opposite of being open-minded...
