Do you know what does your fire insurance plan truly cover?
- If we have an outstanding HDB housing loan, the HDB fire policy typically covers the only internal structures of the flat. i.e. we must insure our own home improvements and home contents.
- If the HDB housing loan is fully paid up, it may not be compulsory to get fire insurance.
- Then there is the risk of under insurance. Did you know that if you are ‘under insured’, you may not be able to claim the full loss under the insurance policy contract?
- To determine the sum insured for your home, you need to include
i. the replacement cost to reinstate the renovations, fixtures and fittings
ii. the cost to replace your home contents and appliances and
iii. the cost to reconstruct the apartment.
