Tathra clean-up making progress
Up to 20 properties affected by the Tathra bushfires in NSW last month have been cleared as recovery efforts continue, the Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) says.
ICA held a policyholder forum last week for householders and businesses to meet insurers and other stakeholders.
The event aimed to “reduce the chance of misinformation and misunderstandings, and provide clear, concise guidance that helps reduce stress and worry”, CEO Rob Whelan said.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced a clean-up package worth up to $10 million.
ICA says insured losses from the Tathra fires and recent Victorian bushfires add up to about $45 million.
