In the event of damage, loss or theft of a piece of issued kit or equipment, you would be liable for replacing. It is important to ensure you have military kit and home insurance to give you peace of mind that your personal possessions and those issued by the military are covered anywhere in the world.
What is covered?
In addition to your issued kit, uniform, equipment and your personal items; our military kit and home insurance also covers your home or room contents and damage caused to your service accommodation (licence to occupy). It includes insurance for your goods when you are on the move, theft of money, legal expenses, glasses cover, frozen food and personal legal liability.
Personal effects and valuables
Our military kit and home insurance will cover loss or damage to your personal possessions anywhere in the world on a new for old basis. All small electrical gadgets (mobile phones, iPads etc) are automatically covered for up to £500 each, and we can offer specific cover for more valuable items such as jewellery or watches.
Home or room contents
Our kit and home insurance offers protection for loss or damage to your room or home contents by fire, flood, and theft. Accidental loss or damage cover is automatically included as are transit moves within the UK or overseas.
License to occupy cover
If you live in service accommodation, you are responsible for any damage up to the sum currently advised by the MOD. In August 2011, this was set at £20,000 – this applies whether you are living as a single person or in a married quarter.
Our military kit and home policy automatically provides cover should you cause any damage.
Personal legal liability
This provides protection for your legal costs and damages awarded against you, if you, or any member of your family living with you causes accidental injury to other person(s) or damage to their property. Family pets such as cats and dogs (excluding dangerous dogs) are regarded as family members.
If you have a legal problem and need to discuss it with someone, our legal helpline is there for you to use whichever country you are based in. In certain areas such as employment disputes, contractual disputes and personal injury you can be provided with up to £75,000 of legal expenses.
As with most household insurances, our military kit and home policies do have an excess; this is £50 for each and every claim except for small electrical items (mobile phones, iPads etc) which have an excess of £75. In respect of goods in transit the excess is increased to £250 for claims occurring within first 3 months.
