A change to RACQ CTP Insurance policies (effective 29 July 2021)
Since 2004, we have offered an At Fault Driver benefit, which provided a one-off lump sum payment to seriously injured people who are considered at fault in a motor vehicle accident. In 2016, the Queensland state government introduced the National Injury Insurance Scheme Queensland (NIIS), which provides rehabilitation and care expenses to anyone who sustains serious personal injury due to a motor vehicle accident, regardless of who is at fault.
With the NIIS providing compensation for those seriously injured, we’ve determined that our At Fault Driver benefit no longer offers the intended value to our members. And so, from 29 July 2021 we will be removing the At Fault Driver inclusion as part of our CTP policy.
What does this mean for me?
The NIIS offers the same benefit as our At Fault Driver inclusion, so in the event of serious injury from a motor vehicle accident, you will still be able to access compensation for care and rehabilitation expenses.
If you currently hold CTP insurance with us, the At Fault Driver benefit will remain in effect until your next registration renewal date.
