Home and Contents Insurance

Your home is your most valuable asset. We may have helped you save for it, helped you with additional finance, and helped structure your accounts for repayments. We’ve been with you on this journey, and now we want to protect your investment as much as you do.

Central West Credit Union can arrange your home, contents or home and contents insurance through CGU Insurance, one of Australia's leading general insurers.

Home

Home Insurance covers your buildings or contents up to the sum insured, as listed on your schedule. Your sums insured will be increased by the amount the Consumer Price Index (CPI) has increased since you took out your policy, when your claim is paid. We recommend you regularly reassess your building sum insured so that you are covered for changes in value to your property after extensions or additions.
 

Contents

You can also protect your home contents against damage or loss.

Organising your Home and/or Contents Insurance through Central West Credit Union provides features and benefits for our members which may not be found in other policies:

  • Pay-by-the-month premiums at no extra charge
