Insurance Council of Australia
The Insurance Council of Australia is the representative body for the general insurance industry of Australia. Visit their website for information and frequently asked questions on insurance after a disaster.
When a natural disaster happens, the impact of underinsurance in households and businesses can be significant, resulting in unrecoverable financial loss which can have flow-on effects for the broader Tasmanian community. There are a range of factors contributing to underinsurance levels in Australia, including affordability, low perceived risk, and low levels of insurance literacy, among others.
The Insurance Checkup tool was created to offer communities access to simple, impartial information to make informed choices when purchasing or reviewing their insurance. For more information or to use the Insurance Checkup Tool, visit www.insurancecheckup.tas.gov.au.
