DASK stands for Natural Disaster Insurance Pool. DASK is a legal public organisation responsible for the acquisition, implementation and management of compulsory earthquake insurance in Turkey.
Compulsory Earthquake Insurance (DASK) is a type of insurance that provides financial assurance to insured homeowners against earthquake and earthquake-induced fire, explosion, landslide and tsunami risks. In the event of earthquake and earthquake-induced damage, it compensates the damage of buildings that become uninhabitable or partially damaged in the fastest way in line with the limits in the insurance policy. If Compulsory Earthquake Insurance (DASK) is not taken out, it is not possible to benefit from this assistance.
Dask calculation is calculated according to the "Compulsory Earthquake Insurance Tariff and Instruction". While calculating the DASK premiums, information such as the construction style of the building, year of construction, total floor and apartment area becomes a pioneer. Although there is a different DASK fee according to the characteristics of each residence, the DASK price you have to pay for your own residence does not change according to the insurance company. You can also fill out the form and get an online DASK quote and quickly see the premium for your home. You can make an online purchase by selecting your policy with DASK calculation
The process of getting DASK insurance online is very easy and fast. Since DASK prices do not vary according to insurance companies, you do not need to do long research. You can get an offer by filling out the form in just 2 minutes by making the DASK premium calculation immediately.

The compensation amount determined in accordance with the General Terms and Conditions of Compulsory Earthquake Insurance is sent to the bank branches in the settlement area where the damage occurred via "EFT / Money Order to Name". The ownership of the policy and the damaged dwelling is checked through these bank branches, and compensation is paid to the relevant beneficiary.
