Insurance Council announces policyholder forums for the recent Tasmanian weather catastrophe

The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) will host two insurance claims guidance forums* in southern Tasmania. The first forum on Wednesday June 13, will be in Kingston, the second forum on Thursday June 14, will be in Hobart, both commencing at 7pm.

The free forums are for insured householders and business owners who have lodged claims for damage caused by the May 11, 2018, extreme weather event.

The forums will focus on the claims management process for policyholders.

Members of the ICA disaster recovery team and insurance company representatives will attend both forums.

Registration by noon Wednesday June 13, 2018 is essential. To register, and receive venue details, go to www.disasters.org.au/forums or call 1800 734 621.

The insurance bill from the heavy rain, wind and storms that lashed Hobart and surrounding areas is $29.6 million with 4560 claims lodged. Property owners who have suffered flood or storm damage are encouraged to contact their insurer as soon as possible.
