  • Insured property refers to: personal belongings of the occupants carried for personal use (personal effects).
  • Uninsured property refers to: valuables (e.g. wallets, credit cards), smartphones, laptops, items used for professional purposes and resale merchandise

NB: The theft of uninsured property must be reported to your employer’s property insurance company and/or your private household insurance company.
