    PPI Help 11th Oct 17 at 11:37 AM
    Good afternoon all,

    After years of convincing myself that I have never been (mis)sold PPI I thought I would check. I've been using the MSE guide and I'm finding myself confused.

    I tend to keep old paperwork filed away and so I've been going through it recently. Credit cards all seem fine, I've only ever had 0% interest ones that I only keep for the duration of the 0% (card tarter, that's me).

    But a few things I did come across but I'm unsure if they fall into the PPI category these are:
    1. Vehicle Protection Insurance (that was included when I bought a new car)
    2. Income Protection
    3. Critical Illness Cover
    The last two of which I was told I needed when I took out my first mortgage.

    Do any of these fall into a category of claiming for mis-sold PPI?

    No. None of those are PPI.

    They are policies to protect your car (in some form or other), your income and for when you suffer a critical illness.

    Fair enough.
