Administered

Queensland Government Insurance Fund

The Queensland Government Insurance Fund (QGIF), administered by Treasury, is a self-insurance arrangement into which government agencies pay premiums intended to meet the cost of claims arising from incidents occurring in the premium year.

Claims are paid out of Queensland Treasury’s Administered accounts, while the provision for outstanding claims is held at the whole-of-government level.

The estimated outstanding claims liability as at 30 June 2019 was $1,764 million, compared to $1,267 million at 30 June 2018. Investments intended to meet the government’s outstanding claims liabilities are held by Queensland Treasury Corporation within its long-term assets. The fund reinsurance program has been in place since 1 November 2011 and is subject to annual renewal.

QGIF’s outstanding claims liability and associated investments are reported in the government’s annual Report on State Finances.
