Together we’re Stronger
You don’t have to be in the Armed Forces to be a member or take out cover with us. If you support our Armed Forces and believe they do a great job you’re welcome to join us.
At The Military Mutual, our Manifesto is very simple: always do the right thing for our Members.
It’s why as a Mutual, we don’t have shareholders. Instead, we let our Members have a say in how we do things. And why we can use our discretion to settle claims, even if that means we pay out more than the policy would cover or normally allow.
We will always do what we believe is the right thing to do.
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
There are two main types of home insurance: buildings insurance and contents insurance, you can also buy combined buildings and contents insurance.
Buildings insurance covers 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, home insurance also protects you against damage caused by a number of unforeseen events, including flooding, fire and explosions.
It is not compulsory to take out Home Insurance, but if you have a mortgage on your property the lender will almost always insist that you have adequate Buildings Insurance in place. If you are in the process of 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.
Your home is probably your largest and most important investment — not to mention that it’s also the roof over your head. It makes absolute sense to protect it.
As for contents insurance, how you would cope if you lost all of your possessions in a fire or your valuables due to a robbery?
For Buildings Insurance, it’s important to make sure you insure yourself for the amount it would cost to completely rebuild your home. The cost of rebuilding your home is not 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. https://abi.bcis.co.uk/
Your landlord should be responsible for the maintenance of the building and any contents they provide.
However you are accountable for your own personal belongings and arranging adequate cover for these. If you would like to know more about Home Contents Insurance, call us now on 0800 088 2966.
There is an excess of £50 on all the sections of cover, for Section 4 Legal liability and occupier’s liability the excess only applies to claims for damage to property. The excess is the amount you pay towards the cost of a claim.
