Who are we?

Although insurance is a necessary part of our lives, many people are unsure about what their policies cover, whether they have enough insurance or even what they need. We're here to help you cut through the jargon, and provide you with practical information to help you find the right policy for you.  

Understand Insurance is an initiative of the Insurance Council of Australia, the peak body for the general insurance industry. The Insurance Council has consulted widely with consumer groups, consumer legal services, disability advocates, regulators and government agencies to provide you with the most accessible and accurate website possible. The information we provide is impartial and not affiliated with any one insurance company.
