Operation and management of the CTP Fund is the responsibility of MAC and is supported ultimately by a Government guarantee. Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance is governed by South Australian legislation, in part of three Acts of State Parliament: the Motor Vehicles Act 1959, Civil Liability Act 1936 and the Motor Accident Commission Act 1992.

The Motor Accident Commission Act 1992 establishes the Board of Directors as the governing body of MAC. The Board is also subject to direction by the Minister. The Act specifies the preparation of a Charter by the Treasurer in consultation with the Board. It details the nature and scope of MAC’s activities.

The Charter provides for the conduct of the CTP insurance business and fund management, the outsourcing of claims management, the provision of support for anti-fraud campaigns and clarifies MAC’s statutory responsibility to support road safety initiatives.

Under the Charter, MAC is required to contract out the management of claims to a manager (or managers) approved by the Minister. SGIC General Insurance Limited (SGIC) provided this service from 1995 to 30 June 2003, after which Allianz Australia Ltd became responsible.

Insurance Partner - Allianz

In South Australia, MAC is the CTP insurer. Allianz Australia Limited is the claims manager and is responsible for processing claims and handling enquiries.

An injured person should contact Allianz as soon as possible after a crash. Allianz will then provide advice on whether he or she is eligible to make a claim and may ask the person to complete the appropriate claim forms.

Allianz can be contacted in person, by telephone or by mail. For more information visit the Allianz website.


About MAC


About MAC

MAC also manages the State Government’s road safety communications program and provides funding for projects that aim to reduce the number and impact of road injuries and deaths.

In South Australia, CTP insurance is built in to the registration process – when you register your vehicle you also pay a CTP insurance premium that is designed to provide cover for people injured in road crashes.

The CTP Fund provides compensation for the victims of road crashes where the owner or driver of a registered motor vehicle or a passenger is at fault.

Our Mission

To provide a viable system of Compulsory Third Party (CTP) injury insurance for South Australians and contribute to road trauma reduction.

Our Vision

We will ensure the long term viability of the CTP Scheme by working with partners and stakeholders for the benefit of South Australian road users.





MAC partners with various organisations in its two key roles:

  • Manager of the CTP insurance scheme in South Australia
