Yes, your contents are covered for earthquakes and other natural disasters.
For more information, visit the EQC website.
If your policy started before 1 July 2019:
Your contents are covered by natural disaster top-up cover if your claim is first accepted by the Earthquake Commission (EQC). Your Contents insurance premium includes an amount for natural disaster insurance, which is provided by the Earthquake Commission and is called EQCover.
If the unexpected happens and your contents are damaged by a natural event, we'll top up the EQCover to your Sum Insured limit, to ensure you can get your life back to normal as quickly as possible.
