Insurance companies will recover only a small part of the damage from the Irkutsk flood
Insurers will indemnify the flood victims in the Irkutsk region no more than one percent of the total amount of damage. This is due to the fact that most of the houses in the flooded area were not insured.
As told RBC with reference to the data of major insurance agencies, from 31 billion rubles of damage will be compensated for no more than 400 million rubles. Most of the people who have applied for payments are entrepreneurs who have insured their property. And only a small percentage - the owners of residential buildings.
Experts attribute low activity in the field of home insurance with a lack of income among the population. In the Irkutsk region suffered mainly the private sector with a poor population.
According to the All-Russian Union of Insurers in the region, no more than 3,4% of all residential buildings and apartments are insured. Currently, 176, 5 million rubles have been paid to victims.
