What does legal expenses insurance cover?

The basic legal assistance insurance can be extended by the following modules.

  • Traffic
    With this module you and your family are insured for legal assistance in all traffic situations worldwide. This means you are not only insured by car, but also as a (moped) cyclist or pedestrian.
  • Consumer and Housing
    With this module you and your family are insured for legal assistance in a variety of consumer cases within the European Union. Here you can think of: purchases (both online and in stores) and problems with a supplier of energy, telephone or internet. In addition, disputes with neighbors or relatives are also insured. Also disputes regarding your home (in the Netherlands) such as purchase, rental, maintenance, renovation are insured and when damage is done to your home.
    Divorce is excluded on most policies because this is a dispute between 2 insureds on the same policy. It is often only possible to use a mediator after a marriage or registered partnership of at least three years.
  • Income
    With this module, you and your family are assured of legal assistance in disputes concerning, among other things, the employment contract, social insurance benefits/provisions, and pension entitlements. Think of a forced dismissal or when the amount of your benefit is in dispute.
  • Tax and wealth
    With this module, you and your family are assured of coverage in the event of disputes with the tax authorities or a securities transaction, for example. Do you have a second home in the Netherlands or the European Union? These disputes are also covered.
