Lloyds PPI provision rockets
Early last week I brought you news of rumours emanating from the city suggesting that the Lloyds PPI bill was about to receive a cash injection to the tune of £1bn.
News on Friday confirmed this rumour, but that is was somewhat of an under-estimation.
Fridays additional £1.4 BILLION sees the Lloyds PPI provision soar to £14.1 BILLION.
It also takes the overall PPI bill to the £30.5bn mark when you take into account provisions made by smaller banks and lenders, and not just the ‘big four’.
Rocky road for Lloyds
In early June the much troubled bank received the biggest PPI specific fine to date, a huge £117m, for their continued failings when handling PPI complaints.
Mis-reporting of the Lloyds PPI provision
You may see most media outlets and news articles suggesting that this latest £1.4bn sees the overall Lloyds PPI provision rise to £13.4bn.
However, this does not take into account the additional £710m it was ordered to set aside for claims it had previously unfairly rejected.
Final overall bill
We’ve been suggesting for some years now that the final PPI bill should be beyond £40bn, but this is dependent on a few factors, with the main two being…
- The estimated 7 million who have yet to make a claim, do so. With a significant amount of UK consumers being sold PPI without their knowledge, there remains a huge number still to come forward.
- When banks and lenders reject valid claims, which they systematically do, never take no for an answer
Lloyds recent statement also confirms that only 45% of the PPI policies it sold between 2000 – 2010, which further backs our argument that this scandal still has years left to run.
