Determining the correct sum insured is critical to ensure you're covered in the event of a claim. If your sum insured is too low, you might not be able to rebuild your home or replace its contents. We may even ask you to use one of our calculators to ensure your sum insured is right for you.

If you're unsure or want to check your sum insured, please use one of our calculators.

You're able to change your sum insured any time during the term of your policy. Log into your Self Service Centre account and select the policy you want to change, adjust the value and follow the prompts.

  1. Log into your Self Service Centre account
  2. Select 'Pay now' on the relevant policy

If an ongoing monthly instalment is unpaid for:

  • 14 days or more after its due date - we may refuse a claim for incidents that take place at that time
  • 30 days after its due date - we’ll automatically cancel your policy without giving you notice, on the 31st day

If you need to delay a payment, you can do this online.

  1. Log into your Self Service Centre account
  2. Select 'Direct debit'
  3. Select your policy
  4. Choose 'request payment extension'

Payment processing means that your payment is awaiting confirmation from your bank. When your payment is confirmed and complete, the next instalment due date will appear in green.

The price of your insurance is based on how likely you are to make a claim and by considering a specific set of influences, including:

  • Pricing factors
  • No Claim Bonus
  • Policy options
  • Loyalty Discounts, and
  • Government charges

To find out more about how we calculate your premium, read our Premium, Excess and Discounts guide

An excess is an amount you may need to pay towards a claim. There are three different types of excess that may apply:

  • Basic - your chosen excess
  • Earthquake
  • Special, for example storm, fire or theft

To find out which excess type applies to you, please refer to your policy document or view your policy in your Self Service Centre account

Unless you've chosen to have a $0 excess on your policy, it's likely that you'll need to pay an excess for your claim. You don't have to pay an excess if you make a claim for:

  • Liability
  • Food spoilage
  • An incident we agree someone else is responsible for. You'll need to provide their name and address, and the claim amount needs to be more than the excess

For general information about excess, please read our Premium, Excess and Discounts guide

A No Claim Bonus (NCB) is a discount that's applied to your premium to reward you for having a good claims history. The longer you remain claim free, the higher your NCB level becomes, plus you'll receive more privileges. Our NCB ranges from 0% to a maximum 25%. We base your NCB on the:

  • Claims history of any listed owners
  • Number of years any listed owners have held home insurance for

To find out more about NCB please read our Premium, Excess and Discounts guide
