Insurers to introduce new ‘Home Insurance’ product
The Federal Government is expected to introduce a new insurance product called Home Insurance.
The product will provide homeowners with coverage for their homes in the event of an emergency.
Home Insurance will be offered by some private insurers.
“Home Insurance is the only product that offers homeowners with catastrophic insurance protection at the time of an event such as a flood or hurricane,” Treasurer Scott Morrison said.
“We will introduce Home Insurance as part of the Government’s new home insurance portfolio in the coming months.”
Home Insurance will ensure that a home owner has insurance coverage in the case of a major disaster, such as an earthquake, tsunami, pandemic or other major natural disaster.
“This is important because people may not be able to access home insurance coverage if their home is not insured.”
We are also working closely with the private sector to create an affordable and effective insurance product that can meet the needs of home owners who are in financial difficulties.
“It provides the best option to ensure they can afford the cost of maintaining and protecting their property during an emergency.” “
Insurance is a critical element of any home owner’s financial management,” Mr Morrison said in a statement.
“It provides the best option to ensure they can afford the cost of maintaining and protecting their property during an emergency.”
Home insurance coverage is subject to a number of exclusions.
These exclude homeowners from paying the cost for flood damage, damage caused by natural disasters, flood-related damage, fire damage and flood damage caused as a result of an act of terrorism.
Mr Morrison confirmed the Government would be introducing the Home Insurance product on an on-going basis.
“The Federal Government will continue to work with the Private and Public Sector Insurance Providers to develop an affordable insurance product which can meet their needs,” he said.
