The Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund
(MAIF) was created in 1972 to replace the Mary-
land Automobile Insurance Plan and the Unsatis-
fied Claim and Judgment Fund (UCJF) (Chapter
73, Acts of 1972).

MAIF performs two basic functions: 1) it pro-
cesses and pays certain claims against uninsured
motorists; and 2) it sells automobile liability insur-
ance to Marylanders who have been rejected by at
least two private insurers or who have had their
automobile liability insurance cancelled or not re-
newed for any reason other than nonpayment of
premiums. With respect to the second function,
MAIF acts as any private insurance company and is
subject to regulation by the State Insurance Com-

Every owner of a motor vehicle registered in
Maryland must maintain the basic required primary
coverage of $20,000/$40,000 bodily injury,
$10,000 property damage, and $2,500 economic
loss coverage. Such compulsory insurance reduces
substantially the number of uninsured claims. It is
not expected, however, that uninsured claims will
disappear completely There will be hit-and-run
accidents, out-of-state uninsured drivers, and Mary-
landers who will not comply with the law.

MAIF receives no general funds from the State,
and its assets are not part of the State Treasury
Present MAIF assets are derived from four sources:
1) monies collected from premiums and earnings
from investments (Code 1957, Art. 48A, secs. 243-
243L); 2) assessments, when required, levied
against all automobile insurers (Code 1957, Art.
48A, secs. 243A, 243M-243N); 3) funds recovered
from uninsured motorists by the Uninsured Divi-
sion; and 4) penalties imposed by the Motor Vehicle
Administration against uninsured motorists (Code
Transportation Article, secs. 17-101 through 17-
