  4. Another one that slipped past me.. Did you take out a joint loan with a partner - then later you divorced? Was there PPI on that loan and did your partner claim and get all of the money back.. with you being non the wiser? http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/saving/article-3871798/Thousands-divorced-women-deprived-PPI-payouts-NatWest-Royal-Bank-Scotland-receive-compensation.html Other banks apparently complied with rules and shared the pay-out between separated partners.

  10. Three women, worked in the same office at Canary Wharf. They had the same female boss and each day, the boss left work, early. One day, the women decided that when the boss left, they would leave, too. After all, she never called, or came back to work, so she would never know that they went home early. Pauline the brunette from Stepney was thrilled to get home early. She did a little gardening, had some playtime with her son, and was able to get a nice dinner ready for her husband when he got home. Ann, the redhead from Lewisham, was elated to be able to get in a quick workout, at the Spa, before meeting a dinner date. Tracy the blonde from Romford, was happy to get home early and couldn't wait to surprise her Husband. But when she got home, she heard a muffled noise, coming from inside her bedroom. Slowly and quietly, she opened the bedroom door just wide enough to peep in and was horrified, to see her boss in bed with her husband. Gently, she closed the door and crept out of her house. The next day, at their coffee break, Pauline and Ann said that they planned to leave early again that day, and they asked Tracy if she was going to go with them. "Not bleedin' likely" she said, "I nearly got caught yesterday."

  13. The Council of Mortgage Lenders and the Building Societies Association will produce guidance for lenders to ensure they are not treating pregnant women or women on maternity unfairly when they apply for a mortgage. The trade bodies will publish their guidance by the end of the year and it will include guidance on “permissible areas of inquiry” and issues for consideration in relation to mortgage applications from these borrowers. Both trade bodies will also deliver guidance for consumer on what they should expect to be asked as part of the application process and what should be asked. The pledge to form guidance comes after a Government review into lending to women, called “Banking on Women”, which was commissioned by the Deputy Prime Minster in 2011. This followed a review of evidence by Professor Noreena Hertz, which suggested it was “very likely” that discrimination was happening in business lending by banks to women and in mortgage lending to women who were pregnant or on maternity leave. However, the report from the Government Equality Office did not find “evidence of a systemic problem” but said: “An absence of evidence does not mean that we can say there is no discrimination; rather, there has been little research into this aspect of mortgage lending.”. It also said there is a long-standing perception that banks discriminate against women, which could act as a deterrent for women in accessing finance from banks. BSA head of mortgage policy Paul Broadhead says: “It is clear that we are dealing with perception here but there is still no room for complacency, particularly in the run up to the implementation of the new mortgage rules from the Financial Conduct Authority. These will see lenders having to ask many more questions of all mortgage applicants to ensure loans are affordable.” A CML spokesman says: ”We welcome the report because even though gender discrimination in financial services is something of a myth, the perception of it is important to address. It is also important not to mistake responsible lending for discrimination. “Both men and women should expect their lender to assess their circumstances carefully to enable them to make good, sustainable lending decisions.” Minister for Women and equalities Jo Swinson says: “We believe there is scope for improvement with lenders thinking through much more than perhaps they have up to now how they deal with mortgage applications from women who are pregnant or on maternity leave. “I am pleased that the Council for Mortgage Lenders and the Building Societies Association have suggested actions to address this.” Link: http://www.mortgagestrategy.co.uk/latest-news/cml-and-bsa-to-publish-guidance-on-lending-to-pregnant-women/1072245.article
  14. Don't fall for it, this new wonder drug to make you slim - garcinia cambogia - look it up and see the false claims. Go by what 'real' medical people tell you, there is no wonder drug to make you lose weight.
  15. Women are being urged to check their car insurance ahead of a new rule coming into force next month which will ban firms from taking gender into account. It means female drivers will see their premiums go up by as much as 25% after 21 December. Some insurers say it might even be cheaper to cancel a policy and sign a new deal before the changes come in. More ... It was obvious they would up the womens policy and not lower the mens. This is twice now the government has forced extra profit on insurance companies and forced us to pay more. First was the con of the 'continuous insurance' and now the 'no gender concessions'. Are MPs shareholders in insurance companies, it would seem that way.
  16. The number of women plunged into insolvency is equal to the number of men for the first time in history, official figures are expected to reveal on Friday. The landmark highlights an extraordinary social change in Britain from a time when a female bankrupt was ‘virtually unheard of’ to the current debt explosion among women. The report, from the accountancy firm RSM Tenon, says its analysis shows around 28,000 people were declared insolvent between 1 April and 30 June.
