What is Argos PPI?

Argos payment protection insurance (PPI), also known as loan repayment insurance, credit insurance or credit protection insurance was designed so that the borrower could make repayments to Argos if they were unable to earn income to service the debt. This shouldn't be confused with income protection insurance which is not usually attached to a debt. PPI was widely sold by Argos as an add-on to the loan or an overdraft product.

Argos PPI usually covered payments for a minimum of 12 months, this gave the borrower enough time to find alternative means of making repayments such as going back to work.

How was Argos PPI mis-sold?

Some Argos PPI policies were sold without the consumer even aware that PPI was added onto their loan. Some consumers claim that Argos informed them that their application for a loan, credit card or mortgage would be declined if they didn't take out Argos payment protection insurance. In some cases this led to fear of losing a loan and the borrower would accept the Argos PPI even though they may not of even needed it.

Have you been mis-sold PPI by Argos?

Argos may have mis-sold you PPI if any of the below statements are relevant to you at the point of sale:

  • Did Argos make you aware about cancelling your PPI policy?
    • You should have been made aware by Argos that you had the right to cancel your PPI policy within the cooling off period.
  • Did Argos make you aware that part of your PPI premiums may have been paid as commission?
    • The Plevin ruling means that if over 50% of your PPI premiums were paid in commission to Argos, you were mis-sold and are due a PPI refund.
  • Did you have a pre-existing medical condition at time you were sold your PPI policy by Argos?
    • If you were ever unable to work throughout the term of your Argos PPI policy due to the pre-existing medical condition, you would not have been covered by the Argos PPI policy.
  • When you were sold your PPI policy by Argos, were you unemployed, self-employed or retired?
    • If you were unemployed, self-employed or retired when Argos sold you your PPI policy, you would not have been covered and therefore the Argos PPI policy would have been of no benefit to you.
  • Did you feel pressured into purchasing the Argos PPI policy?
    • A simple assessment of your personal circumstances to determine if PPI was of any benefit to you should have been carried out by Argos, with no pressure or hard selling.
  • Was the total cost of the Argos PPI policy clearly explained to you at the point of sale?
    • Argos should have explained every aspect of any costs relating to your PPI agreement. Failure to do so would be considered a big mis-selling factor.
  • Was the term of your Argos PPI cover shorter than the term of the finance agreement AND did Argos not explain that there would be a period of no PPI cover towards the end of your finance agreement?
    • If Argos did not explain that you would be unprotected for any period of time throughout the finance agreement, you have been mis-sold your Argos PPI policy.
  • Did Argos make you aware of any exclusions or circumstances in which you would not be eligible to make a claim?
    • If you weren’t told by Argos about the exclusions, or circumstances in which you couldn’t claim, you may have been mis-sold your Argos PPI policy.
  • Were you led to believe that the Argos PPI policy was compulsory to your finance agreement?
    • If a PPI policy was required for the finance agreement, Argos should have made you aware that you had the right to shop around OR if you had pre-existing cover elsewhere, Argos should not have sold you another PPI policy.
  • Were you older than the upper age limit for your Argos PPI policy?
    • If Argos had an upper age limit on the PPI policy and you were above this set age, you would not have been covered.
  • Were you aware that Argos had added PPI to your agreement?
    • If you were not aware PPI had been added to your agreement by Argos, it may have been added without your consent or it may have been opt-out box which was not obvious.
  • Did Argos enquire if you had PPI cover elsewhere that would of covered repayments?
    • Argos should have asked if you had pre-existing PPI cover elsewhere as this would have been sufficient.

What could you be owed from Argos?

If you have a successful PPI complaint against Argos upheld, you would be entitled to a full refund PPI paid to Argos, a full refund of any interest charged on the PPI by Argos and a compensation interest of 8% per annum on both of those combined.
