What is SumExtra?

SumExtra is a top-up cover that makes your AMP Everyday Plus and Everyday Home Insurance go further. It provides extra financial help at claim time if the cost of rebuilding your home (as an optional extra) is even more than your Sum Insured.

How SumExtra works:

  • If your home is damaged or destroyed by a non-natural disaster event, SumExtra makes sure you're completely covered for full replacement or repair costs - even if they’re higher than your Sum Insured.
  • If your home is damaged or destroyed in a natural disaster (earthquake, natural landslip, volcanic eruption, hydrothermal activity, tsunami or fire resulting from any of these) and the cost of full replacement or repair is more than your Sum Insured, SumExtra will pay up to 10% more than your Sum Insured.

We offer SumExtra because we know construction costs can be hard to pin down to the last dollar and even the most carefully calculated Sum Insured might not match actual repair or replacement costs. SumExtra is our way of making sure you’re covered.

Where you have the SumExtra benefit, you qualify if you meet this eligibility criteria:

  • Your Sum Insured should be at least the value of the home’s written rebuild cost estimate. A rebuild cost estimate can be obtained from either:
  • Your rebuild cost estimate should be less than three years old from the date the Sum Insured was last agreed.
  • The estimate should be kept in a safe place to ensure it can be produced at claim time.

Conditions apply - talk to us, or your adviser, for the full details of this benefit.

What is Sum Insured?

Sum Insured is the amount you choose to insure your home for. If you make a claim that is covered by your policy (and if you’re not eligible for the SumExtra benefit) this is the most that will be paid to rebuild your home. Simply put, your Sum Insured needs to reflect the estimated cost of rebuilding your home from scratch taking into account demolition and debris removal costs.

To find out the estimated rebuild cost for your home you can:

  • Seek independent advice from a builder, registered quantity surveyor or registered valuer – make sure it’s a written valuation and is for insurance purposes and does not include any market value component or land value.
  • Use one of the Cordell online calculators. Use the Cordell Online Calculator to get an estimate based on detailed information you enter about your home. Or the Express Cordell Online Calculator which gives an estimate using basic details of your home.

What does Sum Insured mean for my home insurance?

When insuring your house, the Sum Insured needs to reflect the cost of rebuilding your home from scratch. This may differ from government or market valuations so it's important that you find out the cost to rebuild your home.

Get a rebuild cost estimate for your property

A rebuild cost estimate can be obtained from a suitably qualified professional1 or the Cordell Online Calculators (a standard Cordell Online Calculator, which gives an estimate based on detailed information you enter about your home or the Express Cordell Online Calculator which gives an estimate using basic details of your home).

Setting an adequate Sum Insured is your responsibility.

If you’re taking out a new home insurance policy with us, you will be required to provide a Sum Insured value for your home.

If you’re an existing customer with us and since 1 July 2013 have not specified a Sum Insured, your policy would have renewed every year using a default Sum Insured value. The default Sum Insured may not be adequate to replace your home including all other structures at your property. It is calculated using a rebuild cost of $2,000 per square metre for your home only.

Reviewing your Sum Insured regularly is important.

An annual indexation is applied to the Sum Insured on renewal every year for inflation, however you shouldn’t rely on this as an adequate reflection of any increase in costs.

It’s a good idea to regularly review your Sum Insured and your home’s rebuild cost estimate. We recommend doing this at least every couple of years. You may need to factor in any renovations or extensions and other changes such as inflation, changes in building costs and consumer price indexing.
