Standard Fire Special Perils Cover Policy

Features & Benefits

    A lot of time and money goes into procuring the valuables you own and keeping them secure and safe from damage should be your first line of defense against any financial losses and loss of possession.

    The indemnity policy, Standard Fire & Special Perils Insurance by Liberty General Insurance pays for the actual value of the insured property or properties, immediately before any damage or loss.
