Important information

Getting the right cover is important. That’s why we’ve put all the extra information you need in one, easy to use place. 

Your home is unique, so when nominating your sum insured you should carefully consider the cost to remove debris and rebuild at today’s prices. To make things easy for you, QBE provides a useful Home Contents Calculator and a Home Building Calculator to help you determine your sum insured and you can contact us for assistance on 1800 171 889.

If you need to make a claim we won't make you wade through paperwork. QBE has a 24-hour emergency claims number. In most cases, you need just provide details over the phone. To make a claim, call 1300 734 729.

An excess may apply to a claim you make under your policy. The amount of the excess is shown on your Certificate of Insurance. This excess will apply to each event that results in a claim.

It’s important you read the relevant Financial Services Guide before acting on any advice or taking out insurance through us. You can download the FSG here.

There are various ways to enjoy discounts on your premium when you take out insurance through Australian Unity. See the PDS for terms and conditions.

Select your excess

Your excess is the initial amount you may have to pay yourself if you make a claim. To make life easier, you can choose your level of excess at the time of applying for cover. The higher the excess you choose, the lower the premium you’ll pay.

No claims bonus

A range of bonuses are available that reward you for not making a claim. Terms and conditions apply. To find out if you’re eligible, call us on 1800 171 889.

Seniors discount

Named policyholders over 50 years old are entitled to the over 50s discount.

Retirees' discount

If you are retired and no longer working more than 20 hours a week your premium will reflect the lower-risk nature of your circumstances.
