Lloyds PPI bill increases by £900 million
Earlier this year, in a previous announcement regarding it’s figures to the city, Lloyds decided not to add to their PPI compensation fund, prompting analysts to confidently predict it was the beginning of the end of the PPI scandal.
I disagreed with that prediction in my blog, pointing out that Lloyds were in the process of selling off a stake in TSB and that any negative news could negatively impact the share price.
I also predicted at that time that the Lloyds PPI compensation fund would increase by a minimum of £1 BILLION over the course of the following twelve months.
This years increases
In May of this year, Lloyds announced they were adding a further £600 MILLION to the fund, taking it beyond the £10 BILLION mark.
Today, the bank have announced, along with 9,000 job cuts and 150 branch closures, that it has added a whopping £900 MILLION to it’s spiralling PPI compensation fund.
This sees the Lloyds Banking Group PPI bill, which includes Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Blackhorse, smash the £11 BILLION barrier, and puts an end to the prediction made by banks and lenders of a final bill of £25 BILLION.
Millions yet to claim thanks to bank tactics
Whilst the majority of people who knew they had PPI have now made a claim, there are millions out there who have not.
The main reason for the estimated 7 million who have not yet stepped forward to make a claim, is that they are simply unaware they’ve been sold PPI.
PPI was added to 34 million policies, and one of the main reasons for a mis-sale is that these policies were added to mortgages, loans, hire purchase agreements, credit and store cards without the knowledge of the customer.
