This website provides important information for customers who bought a card or identity protection policy through us (CPP), a bank or card issuer.
Thank you for visiting the CPP Compensation Scheme website. The last date for submitting all claims for compensation, for premiums paid after the 14th January 2005, was the 28th February 2015, therefore any new claims that are received after this date will be unsuccessful.
However, we will continue to handle queries relating to compensation claims which are currently in progress. If you currently have a claim which is in progress with the scheme, you may have been re-issued a claim form or received a letter requesting further evidence to be provided within 30 days. Please ensure that you return the requested claim form/evidence within the timescales provided or we will not be able to progress your claim further.
If you have a query about an ongoing compensation claim or you have already received a cheque for compensation from the CPP Compensation Scheme and you require the cheque to be reissued, please write to CPP at the following address:

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) (previously named the Financial Services Authority) has required us to write to eligible customers as they may have been mis-sold a card or identity protection policy and be entitled to compensation.
In November 2013 we sent letters to all customers who are eligible to take part in a proposed scheme of arrangement ('scheme') and invited them to vote on whether or not a scheme was an appropriate way to review policies and pay compensation if appropriate. The meeting of the scheme creditors was held on 7 January 2014 and the scheme was successfully approved by customers who were sold or renewed a policy since 14 January 2005. Votes were cast by 18% of those eligible to vote and of those who voted, 98% of votes were in favour of the Scheme.
The High Court sanctioned the scheme on 14 January 2014. The scheme became effective on 31 January 2014, when the Court order sanctioning the scheme was filed at Companies House. The scheme is now the process by which claims will be assessed and, where appropriate, compensation paid to customers.
In February 2014 we sent letters to all customers who are eligible to take part in the scheme and invited them to claim compensation if they wished to do so. If you have not yet received a letter please see information here. Please note that if customers wish to claim compensation they must do so by returning an enclosed original form to us (not photocopies), to be received by us by 30 August 2014. You can find further information on how to claim here
If you return a form to us and a claim is processed your policy will be cancelled. If you do not wish to claim compensation, or wish to keep your policy you do not need to return your form and do not need to take any further action.
If you are a customer eligible for compensation under the scheme and you have been made bankrupt at any time since you took out one of our policies you should contact your official receiver or trustee to advise them whether you intend to claim, have claimed or have received payment from the scheme.
