The Earthquake Commission (Toka Tū Ake EQC) covers damage to your home caused by natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanos, tsunamis, landslips and geothermal events, as well as fire resulting from any of these. It also covers damage to your land caused by a natural disaster, storm or flood. The maximum cover through Toka Tū Ake EQC for your building is $345,000 (incl GST). Your Home or Landlord Insurance Policy will top up this amount, up to your Sum Insured, if you need more cover than this.
