MGF mission

The Motor Guarantee Fund (MGF) is an autonomous public fund, managed by the Insurance and Pension Funds Supervisory Authority.
The Fund ensures, among other cases, the compensation of personal injuries and damage to property resulting from road accidents in Portugal when the person responsible hereof is unknown or, if known, has not fulfilled the obligation to take out motor third party liability insurance.

The Motor Guarantee Fund  also pays the compensation due for bodily injuries when the MTPL insurance 

undertaking is declared insolvent. At European level, the MGF also acts as Information Centre and Compensation Body.

Reimbursement of sums paid

The MGF is entitled to demand the reimbursement of the amounts spent on claims settling, plus default interest.

Under the law, the holder, the owner and the driver of the vehicle which caused the accident are jointly and severally liable for the reimbursement, regardless of upon whom the obligation to take out the insurance falls.
