What to do following a natural disaster
The Earthquake Commission (EQC) provides natural disaster insurance for residential homes called EQCover. You automatically have this cover as part of your ASB Home Insurance.
EQCover insures your home and some areas of your residential land against loss or damage from earthquakes, natural landslips, volcanic eruptions, hydrothermal activity and tsunami, as well as fire resulting from any of these natural disasters. It also insures your residential land (within limits) against storm and flood damage. (Note, your home insurance policy does not cover your land).
Replacement of keys and locks:
If a key to your home, or to a safe at your home, is lost or stolen, or if you believe the key has been duplicated without your permission, you don't pay an excess as long as your claim is only for replacing these keys and their locks. This includes electronic keys, swipe cards or equivalent devices.
Excess-free glass and bathroom fixtures optional benefit:
If you have purchased the Excess-free glass and bathroom fixtures optional benefit for your Home policy, you can claim for sudden and accidental breakage of any of the following at your home and not pay an excess:
Water or sewage pipe blockage:
Under your Home policy, you do not pay an excess if your claim is only for clearing a blocked underground water or sewage pipe you are legally responsible for. We'll pay up to $500 during each year of insurance.
