The Insurance Council of Australia (ICA), which represents Australia's general insurance sector, will embark on a two-week community roadshow for policyholders affected by the recent flooding in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales.
The cost of this year's floods across south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales is estimated to be $3.346 billion, making it Australia's costliest flood ever.
"Many people affected in the Northern Rivers region in New South Wales are seeking an understanding of their insurance policy and how it responds to this severe weather event, as well as the next steps in the recovery process," ICA CEO Andrew Hall said.
The community roadshows will be held across the region with the Lismore meeting to be held at SCU on Wednesday, May 25. Bookings are essential: insurancecouncil.com.au/NorthernRiversFloods.
The community roadshow will follow a virtual event to be held today, Thursday May 12. Bookings for the virtual townhall can be made at insurancecouncil.com.au/onlinetownhall
