EQC Domestic Earthquake Claims Settlement Advice
23 December 2016

For the recent events in Kaikoura on the 14th November 2016 all claims are to be lodged with the EQC or your private insurer, by 14 February 2017


As a result of the recent earthquake events an agreement between private insurers and the Earthquake Commission (EQC) has been formed to simplify how home and contents insurance claims are resolved for insured people affected by the recent Earthquakes.


Under the agreement, private insurers will act as EQC’s agents and settle your home and contents claims for earthquake damage for their own customers, even those claims that are under the EQC cap. The EQC cap is up to $100,000 (+ GST) for your insured home and up to $20,000 (+ GST) for your insured contents.


If you need to lodge a claim or would like more information please contact our team on 09 377 4314 or claims@icib.co.nz
