Understand Insurance is an initiative of the Insurance Council of Australia, the peak body for the general insurance industry.

Understand Insurance is a consumer financial literacy initiative to help Australians better understand general insurance. We provide practical information to help you find out more about insurance and make decisions that meet your needs.

In creating Understand Insurance, the Insurance Council of Australia consulted widely with consumer groups, consumer legal services, disability advocates, regulators and government agencies to help make the website as accessible and accurate as possible.
