House insurance has changed

We understand your home is often your most valuable asset. That's why it's so important to protect it with adequate insurance. Unexpected events can and do happen - for example the Canterbury earthquakes - make sure you're not underinsured.

Most insurers now offer house insurance based on a specified sum insured amount, rather than the floor area of a property. But you can't assume your insurer's default sum insured is accurate for your home. As a homeowner you're responsible for working out the sum insured for your home.

We have a video that explains exactly what's happening and what you need to do, as well as a calculator and links to professionals to help you work out the sum insured for your home. Also take the time to listen to David and Teresa's story on why house insurance was so important to them and the impact sum insured has had.

ANZ can help in other ways too. Take out two or more insurance policies with us - any mix of house, contents or car and you'll receive up to 15% off your premiums.
