CHU has multiple payment methods for their landlord and contents insurance customers. You can pay by:
You can choose to pay your premium for the full year upfront or you can choose to pay monthly. There may be a small administration fee applied if you select the monthly payment schedule.
CHU contents insurance can cover a wide variety of items. Some items attract unlimited cover, while many others have cover limits. These include:
CHU includes flood cover for contents insurance customers as standard, meaning there’s no need to purchase additional coverage for this item. The flood risk to your property’s location will be accounted for in the price you pay for your overall policy. For more detail on flood cover limits, please review the PDS.
To make a contents insurance claim with CHU, you can call their hotline any time or go online to their website and lodge a claim there. You will need to provide details like your policy number and any related documents or evidence to support your claim.
You will have to pay an excess when you make an insurance claim, once CHU has approved it. After the excess is paid, CHU will then decide to replace or repair your contents based on the circumstances of your claim and the coverage in your policy or provide a payout.
You can cancel your policy by contacting CHU’s hotline. If you cancel during the 21-day cooling-off period following your initial purchase or renewal of your policy, you’ll receive a full refund. If you cancelled after the cooling-off period but paid for cover annually, you’ll receive a refund for the period of cover you haven’t yet used.
