Frequently Asked Questions


What is a surety bond?

A surety bond is a three-party agreement in which the issuer of the bond (the surety) joins with the second party (the principal) in guaranteeing to a third party (the obligee) the fulfillment of an obligation on the part of the principal.

The three parties in a surety bond agreement are:

The Surety – The surety is a corporation which determines if an applicant (principal) is qualified to be bonded for the performance of some act or service. If so, the surety issues the bond. If the bonded individual does not perform as promised, the surety performs the obligation or pays for any damages.

The Principal - The principal is an individual, partnership or corporation who offers an action or service and is required to post a bond. Once bonded, the surety guarantees that he will perform as promised.

The Obligee – The obligee is an individual, partnership, corporation or a government entity which requires the guarantee that an action or service will be performed. If not properly performed, the surety pays the obligee for any damages or fulfills the obligation.

How long does it take to issue a bond?

A bond is usually issued within 1 business day of receipt of application, unless the underwriting department has any questions or concerns regarding the application and needs more information.

Is a bond insurance?

A surety bond is not insurance! The principal is the responsible party and is obligated to reimburse the surety for any claims or expenses occurred if the principal fails to meet the conditions of the bond. Don't worry- as long as the principal does what is promised, the surety will not be called upon to perform or pay.

What happens if a claim is filed against my bond?

The surety's claim department will conduct an investigation to determine if the claim is legitimate. If the surety does determine that the claim is valid, the surety company will arrange settlement with the obligee. The surety then tries to reclaim its loss from the principal.

What is a bond premium?

The bond premium is the amount of money paid to the surety or insurance company for a bond.

What is a bond term?

The bond term is the period of time for which a bond is active.

What is the effective date?

It is the date upon which coverage begins.

What is the expiration date?

The expiration date is the date upon which the bond will cease to provide coverage.

What is a lien?

In general, it's a legal notice that's put on a real or personal property as a consequence of an unpaid debt.
