    Life Assured

    Life Assured 15th Apr 19 at 9:35 AM

    I took out a mortgage through the Halifax 10 years ago and was told that as it finished after I had retired I needed to take out a Life Assured Policy to cover me in case I died.

    I donít really understand PPI and wondered if this would be eligible to claim for under PPI?

    Thank you

    You can only claim on life assurance if you die, so did you die?

    Life assurance is life assurance

    PPI is PPI

    Asking if life assurance is like PPI is like asking if bread is like bananas, 2 different products. If you had to have life assurance to get the mortgage then it cannot be miss-sold.

    Time to move on

    PPi is a product. Life assurance is a different product. You cannot be "eligible" for PPI on a life assurance policy.
