what amounts will be needed to pay claims and
their allocated operational expenses.
The present assets of the MAIF are derived
from four sources: (1) Monies collected from
premiums and earnings from investments (Code
1957, Art. 48A, sees. 243-243L). (2) By virtue of
Chapter 241 (1976), as amended by Chapter 364
(1978), each insurer authorized to write automo-
bile liability and physical damage insurance in
this State may be assessed up to 4% of its net di-
rect written premiums. The MAIF Board of
Trustees determines whether or not it will have a
cash operating deficit on a projected basis. If so,
MAIF certifies this amount to the Industry Au-
tomobile Insurance Association (I.A.I.A.), which
represents the insurance industry in Maryland.
I.A.I.A. collects the certified amount from its
member companies and places it in a trust fund
maintained within the State of Maryland for the
use and benefit of MAIF. MAIF may apply to
the trustees for the use of the funds only after it
sustains an actual cash operating deficit during
any calendar quarter in the year following its
projected certified cash operating deficit. These
statutes contain a recoupment mechanism where-
by the I.A.I.A. member insurers may recoup the
assessment from their individual insureds. Assess-
ment monies may be used for the general
purposes of the fund; however, premium and in-
vestment income may be used only for payment
of claims and administrative expenses of the fund
arising out of policies issued by the fund. The
fund is required to keep separate records of in-
come and expenses directly attributable to the
processing and payment of uninsured claims. (3)
The Uninsured Division (former UCJF) has the
right of recovery (subrogation) against the
uninsured motorist for those monies it expends as
the result of the uninsured motorist's negligence.
(4) Chapter 291, Acts of 1975, as amended by
Chapter 499, Acts of 1966, and Chapter 346,
Acts of 1978, authorizes the Motor Vehicle Ad-
ministration to assess a penalty of up to $100
against those motorists who operate a vehicle in
Maryland without insurance. The Motor Vehicle
Administration may deduct a fee of ten percent
(10%) of the amount collected, and the balance is
remitted to MAIF for the use of its Uninsured
Division operation.
