Extreme weather claims

The information you need to claim after an extreme weather event
When extreme weather hits, your family’s safety comes first. Follow key guidance from authorities and call 000 in an emergency. Only make a claim when it is safe to do so.
If you have sustained damage to property or motor vehicles as a result of an extreme weather event, you can lodge a claim when it’s safe and practical to do so.
To minimise delays, lodge your claim online. After that, a claims team member will contact you as soon as possible.
If you’ve lost your insurance documents, or can’t claim online, don’t worry. You can call our claims centre and we can help you with your policy details over the phone.
Please note, we may not provide cover for any loss of or damage to your property caused by cyclone, flood, grassfires and bushfires during the first 72 hours after you first purchase a policy or increase your cover under an existing policy. For full details of conditions and exclusions please refer to the relevant PDS.
To help with your claim, send through as much information as possible, including photos of any damage. Once you’ve taken photos, you can start to clean up to prevent any further damage and remove any damaged items and place them on the curb.

If you’ve lodged a claim online, we’ll contact you by the preferred method you requested — phone or email. 

If you have a property claim, and depending on its nature, our claims specialists may connect you with a Loss Adjustor.

A Loss Adjustor is someone who will attend the location of the loss to understand the cause and extent of the loss. They will then provide this feedback to Allianz to determine the outcome of your claim. The Loss Adjustor will contact you by the preferred method you requested — phone or email.
They will speak to you to understand the circumstances and extent of the loss.
You can track your claim by calling us on 13 10 13.

In the instance that you need to cover your property or motor vehicle from further immediate damage or harm, Allianz will pay reasonable costs.

Where possible, contact us to discuss before engaging in repairs. We encourage all customers to make a claim as soon as it is practical and safe to do so. 

Extreme weather events may impact the time in which a claim is processed.

However, our claims team will be there to guide you through each stage of the claims process to ensure you receive assistance and support.
