Singapore, 6 October 2017 – StarHub customers can now enjoy a complimentary 12-month home contents insurance plan when they sign up for or recontract any Home Broadband, TV or HomeHub service. Called HomeInsured, the plan provides coverage of up to $1,500 in the event of fire (with a sub-limit of $750 for personal household electronics appliances) and is underwritten by Chubb Insurance Singapore Limited (Chubb in Singapore).

According to the Singapore Civil Defence Force’s Fire Incident Statistics 2016, there are seven cases of residential fires in Singapore every day. HomeInsured offers comprehensive coverage for the renovations, fixtures & fittings and home contents damage or loss due to fire within the home, as opposed to fire insurance plans which only cover the structure and permanent fixtures of the home.

“We are constantly challenging ourselves to find ways to better serve our customers and exceed their expectations. Chubb is a trusted name in insurance and we are excited to partner with them to give customers a complete home offering unlike anything else in the market today. With HomeInsured, customers can enjoy our Home Broadband, TV and HomeHub services to the fullest, with the knowledge that their home valuables are protected.” said Howie Lau, Chief Marketing Officer of StarHub.

“At Chubb, we continually strive to provide relevant protection for our customers. Given the lack of awareness in home contents insurance in Singapore, we are very excited at the opportunity to partner with StarHub to offer their customers complimentary home contents insurance when they sign up for or re-contract any StarHub Home Broadband, TV or HomeHub service. Unlike fire insurance which normally only covers structure and permanent fixtures, with our HomeInsured starter pack, we hope that every StarHub household can enjoy StarHub’s services with peace of mind by being Chubb insured.” said Adam Clifford, Country President for Chubb in Singapore.

HomeInsured coverage will commence after the StarHub service has been activated and Chubb has confirmed the customer’s eligibility. HomeInsured comes with no additional charges and will be automatically terminated at the end of the 12-month period. Customers can contact Chubb at any time to enhance their coverage.
