Prepared to weather any storm

Storm season is part of life in Queensland. At Suncorp, we’ve helped keep our home State safe for more than 100 years.

While we can’t control the weather, we can prepare for storms. There are important steps we can all take to make our properties more storm-ready and help keep our families safe.

Support when it matters most

When storms hit, your family’s safety always comes first. Contact 000 in any emergency. Visit Get Ready Queensland and Queensland Disaster Management for access to Local and State Government information, advice and alerts.

After a major storm, our Queensland teams will mobilise. In recent years, Suncorp teams have been among the first on-the-ground in storm-affected areas.

Suncorp teams have helped customers urgently arrange ‘make-safe’ home repairs. We’ve organised temporary accommodation for policy holders whose homes were severely damaged. And we’ve provided cash payments to customers who needed to make emergency purchases. We’re Queenslanders helping Queenslanders. It’s who we are.

Visit the Suncorp Group website to learn how we supported Townsville and North Queensland after 2019’s devastating floods.

Save with the Cyclone Resilience Benefit

Eligible North Queensland customers can save up to 20% on Suncorp home insurance premiums by making their properties more storm ready.#
