Card Protection (CP) provided by Homecare Insurance Ltd, a subsidiary of CPPGroup plc, is an optional insurance policy which offers protection to policyholders in the event of card loss or fraud. Bank of Ireland previously offered this product to its credit card customers.
At the request of the Central Bank of Ireland, Bank of Ireland and Homecare Insurance Limited agreed to participate voluntarily in a redress scheme for Bank of Ireland customers who purchased Card Protection insurance before the 1st of August 2011(the “Redress Scheme”). Eligible customers were given the opportunity to claim a refund of Card Protection premiums paid since the introduction of the Consumer Protection Code on the 1st of August 2006.
The Redress Scheme has now closed. Any customers who wish to claim a refund of premiums can do so by contacting Homecare Insurance Limited’s information line 1800 646 518 or writing to them at:
