Other Types of Bonds We Write
Contract Bonds (Client Specific Bonds)
Bonds which guarantee the faithful performance of the terms of a written contract. Contractors or vendors can be required to obtain these for providing services, manufacturing/supplying goods, performing installation of equipment/software, or for construction of all kinds. These are often referred to as "Performance bonds" or "Remittance bonds."
Fidelity Bonds
Bonds which cover loss of money, securities, or other property owned by the insured when such loss is due to the dishonesty of the insured's employees.
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 – requires that qualifying employee benefit plans be bonded by acceptable surety companies for the protection of plan funds against loss by acts of fraud or dishonesty on the part of those persons handling the funds.
Court Bonds
These describe any bonds which are filed in court and include: Judicial, Probate, and Injunction bonds.
Notary Bonds
Most states require that a notary, or an individual who has applied for appointment as a notary, purchase a surety bond to protect the public from negligent mistakes or dishonest acts by the notary. Typically, the bond guarantees the notary will truly and faithfully perform and discharge all the duties of the office of notary public according to the law.
