A. We anticipate that many more people, likely as directed by the government and their employer, will need to work at home more frequently or even until further notice.
So people may have more home office equipment (including computers, laptops, monitors and printers) than normal at their residence.
We're therefore taking a more flexible approach to help our customers who need to work from home temporarily, but whose home contents policy does not ordinarily cover this additional equipment. The same cover applies as your policy so, for example, your chosen level of accidental damage cover will remain the same.
Where home office equipment is owned by an employer, your employer's insurance should cover any damage but we'll pay if employees are legally liable for any damage or the employer does not have cover in place.
For the next three months (from 23 March), we'll be treating home office equipment as ‘contents’ and so it'll be covered under all our home contents policies and we’ll pay up to the contents sum insured for any valid claim. All other policy terms and conditions remain unchanged.
