Who Provides Your Cover

The Military Mutual offers cover on a discretionary basis to its Members which means the Board can, at its discretion, settle claims outside the normal terms and conditions if they feel that Members would support this.

We collect contributions from our Members and use these to pay claims and to cover operating expenses. Any future surpluses generated beyond these needs belong to our Members and can only be used for the benefit of our Members or as agreed by our Members.

In addition to the discretionary protection, we’ve also arranged an insurance contract for you with Builders Direct S.A., a European company authorised to operate in the UK and rated A- (Excellent) by A.M. Best for its financial strength. The purpose of this insurance protection is to provide you with contractual insurance rights alongside your discretionary cover. Therefore, Members of The Military Mutual have two layers of protection within their cover for increased security and peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does our Home Cover work?

There are two main types of Home Cover: Buildings Cover and Contents Cover; you can also buy Combined Buildings and Contents Cover.

Buildings Cover protects the structure of your home – for example, your walls, windows and roof, as well as permanent fixtures and fittings, such as baths, toilets and fitted kitchens – while Contents Insurance covers the possessions in your home.

As well as covering you for theft, our home cover also protects you against damage caused by a number of unforeseen events, including flooding, fire and explosions.

Is Home Cover a legal requirement?

It’s not compulsory to take out Home Cover, but if you have a mortgage on your property the lender will almost always insist that you have adequate Buildings Cover in place. If you’re buying a home, you should make sure you have Buildings Cover in place when you exchange contracts, as you then have a financial interest in the property. You may also be covered under the seller’s insurance. Our Mutual Home Cover also comes with an insurance contract from Builders Direct, giving you both Mutual protection and contractual insurance rights. 

Why is Home Cover important?

Your home is probably your largest and most important asset — not to mention that it’s also the roof over your head. It makes absolute sense to protect it.

As for Contents Cover, how would you cope if you lost all of your possessions in a fire or your valuables due to a robbery?

How much Home Cover do I need?

For Buildings, it’s important to make sure you have cover for the amount it would cost to completely rebuild your home. The cost of rebuilding your home isn’t the same as the price you paid for your home, or its current value if you were to sell it. Rebuild costs are usually less than the current market value, so make sure you don’t over or under insure yourself.

To help you work out the cost of rebuilding your home, there’s a Building Cost Information Service online calculator on the Association of British Insurers’ website.

What Home Contents Cover do I need if I rent?

Your landlord should be responsible for insuring the building and any contents they provide.

However you’re responsible for your own contents and personal belongings and arranging adequate cover for them. If you’d like to know more about our Home Contents Cover, call us now on 0800 088 2966.
