Who are MBNA?

Founded in America in 1982, MBNA originally stood for Maryland Bank National Association. The band has been in the UK since 1993, and is based in Chester. MBNA joined Lloyds Banking Group in 2017, and now trades under a trading style. They offer a number of financial products including credit cards.

MBNA and Lloyds were massive players in the PPI scandal. In the final year alone, Lloyds paid £2.5billion in PPI compensation claims, taking their total paid out over the mis-selling saga to £21.9 billion, the largest of any financial company.


What is an MBNA Plevin PPI Claim?

A Plevin PPI claim refers to a November 2014 ruling that saw Mrs Plevin win a court case against her lender. She was sold a PPI policy to cover her secured loan from Paragon Personal Finance. Mrs Plevin poured through the small print of this policy and found that a massive 71.8% of this payment was commission that had been concealed in the terms and conditions.

This commission was payment to the lender, and she alleged this was unfair. In November 2014, the Supreme Court agreed, due to:

  • Non-disclosure of the commission payment; and
  • The percentage of the PPI premium that was paid as commission.

This then set precedent for future PPI cases, with the FCA saying that anyone who wishes to bring forward a separate Plevin PPI claim should do so. The main part of the claim is centred around the hidden commission part of the policy.


Are Plevin cases different to mis-sold PPI cases?

Yes, the original PPI mis-selling claim and a Plevin PPI claim are actually different types of claims. A PPI claim is based around the mis-selling of the policy, whereas Plevin doesn’t take in account whether or not the policy was suitable for the customer or not.

Instead, it focusses on whether there was any hidden or undisclosed commission on the policy. If this commission was higher than 50% of the policy, then it has been mis-sold.

This distinction actually means that if it was originally determined you were not mis-sold your PPI policy, you may still be able to claim compensation.


Am I eligible to claim Plevin PPI?

If the below applies to you, you may be eligible to claim:

  • Your PPI policy was sold before 6 April 2007 and open after 6 April 2008; or
  • Your PPI policy was sold after 6 April 2007 (whether or not it was still open after 6 April 2008);
  • You have not previously complained about Mis-sold PPI;
  • You have had a PPI Claim rejected; or
  • You had a refund for the “Plevin only” part of your PPI (also known as a “tipping point offer”)

Because Plevin also applies to those who have been turned down historic PPI claims, there could be an additional 1.2 million individuals affected. If you believe you have an MBNA Plevin claim, get in touch with our panel of experts today.


How much can I claim for Plevin PPI cases?

How much you are owed from a Plevin will depend on a few factors. If the commission paid was over 50%, the FCA has ruled that claimants can received a refund for the difference back in compensation. For example, typically, a £20,000 loan over five years could see £1,000 compensation for a Plevin PPI case.

Our expert panel of MBNA Plevin PPI solicitors will be able to inform you how much you could look to recover in compensation.
