Difficult time

“Moreton Bay and northern Brisbane suburbs were hardest hit, with almost 4000 property and motor vehicle claims received in those communities alone,” he said.

“We expect claims will continue to flow through as people assess the damage and we want to be there for our members to support them through this difficult time.

“We’re continuing to provide safety checks, emergency payments, temporary accommodation, insurance advice and tailored disaster relief packages to bank members

Members can also continue to lodge their claims online or call us on 13 72 02.
