Coverage and Benefits
- What does HomeInsured cover?
HomeInsured provides FREE 12 months coverage for your renovations, fixtures & fittings and home contents, for up to $1,500 in the event of fire (with a sub-limit of $750 for personal household electronic appliances).
Renovations, fixture & fittings means any improvements and additions within your residential premises like light fittings, built-in wardrobes, floor finishes, curtains and etc. which are not insured by the management corporation of your building.
Home contents means any physical and movable household items or personal belongings including money and valuables kept within your residential premises that belong to you or your family members.
- If my billing address and service address are different, which address will be the property to be insured?
Upon successful enrolment, your service address will be the insured property.
- Can I change the insured property under my HomeInsured plan to my billing address?
No, your insured property is tagged to your service address.
- During the policy coverage period, can I change the insured property under my HomeInsured plan to my new service address if I move house?
Yes. During the policy coverage period, you may change the insured property under your HomeInsured plan (by informing Chubb) to your new service address.
- What is the difference between my existing home insurance plan and HomeInsured?
The home insurance plan that you or most homeowners have may be just a fire insurance cover. Fire insurance is a basic home insurance plan that covers only the structure of the buildings in the event of a fire. It does not cover your renovations, fixtures & fittings and home contents. HomeInsured is a home contents insurance that provides coverage for your renovations, fixtures & fittings and home contents.
- If I am already enrolled in a home contents insurance plan, wouldn’t it be a duplicate coverage?
No, there is no limit to the number of home contents insurance plans you can have. As you continue to upgrade your accommodation, your home contents will increase in value and may require more protection. In the event of any home mishaps like fire, you can claim on the excess which is not covered under your first policy.
