Is your home adequately insured?
Check with your insurance provider.
Your home is your most valuable asset. Ensure it’s covered for its reconstruction value.
What is underinsurance?
Underinsurance means you have insured your home or contents for less than the actual cost to rebuild, repair or replace. This can put you at significant risk of financial hardship in the event of a claim.
What is your sum insured?
The dollar value you choose to insure your home and its contents for, is referred to as your sum insured. This represents the full cost to rebuild, repair or replace your home in the event of a total loss.
Why does updating your sum insured matter?
The true replacement cost of your home increases over time. Just as the cost of living increases each year, so do the costs associated with building your home.
