Making it easier to claim in the event of a natural disaster

From 30 June 2021, private insurers will manage EQCover claims for natural disaster insurance cover on behalf of EQC. We’ve partnered with EQC alongside seven other private insurance companies, to better respond to future natural disasters and improve your experience if you need our support.

We will be your (or your broker's) single point of contact if your home or land is damaged in a natural disaster and you need to make a claim. You will only need to lodge your claim with us and we will assess, manage, and settle your entire claim, including the EQCover* portion of your claim. This will make the process simpler and easier at what can be a very stressful time. Find out more about EQCover at

*If you have a current House insurance policy with Ando, you automatically have EQCover, which covers damage from natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, natural landslips and geothermal events, with building damage capped at $150,000 ex GST. It also insures for fire resulting from any of these natural disasters, and land damage from storms or floods.
