Licence to occupy cover
If you occupy service accommodation, either as a single person or in a married quarter, you will have signed a Service Licence to Occupy contract. Within this agreement there is a clause that states that you are liable for damage up to at least the sum advised currently by the MOD, which from 1st August 2011 was set at £20,000. We automatically provide cover for this in our policy.
If you have a legal problem and need to discuss it with someone our legal help line 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.
How much will it cost?
Premiums are very competitive for both single and married personnel. We have different rates for those based in the UK and those based overseas. You simply select the levels of cover that suit your personal circumstances. For military personnel there are three sections – military kit, personal possessions/valuables and household contents. For civilians attached, obviously, there is no need for military equipment cover.
How do I pay?
Payment is normally made by monthly direct debit from your UK bank account. No extra cost is charged. The direct debit system is tightly controlled and offers many guarantees for you. Collection is usually made on the first working day of each month.
Is there a policy excess?
In common with most household insurances, there is an excess. The excess of £50 is for each and every claim except small electrical items such as laptops and mobile phones which have a £75 excess.
