How do I renew my bond?
In order to process your renewal, all we need is payment. Use the form on this page to submit your payment.
We will email a paid invoice as soon as the payment has been processed, within 1-2 business days or less.
Do I receive a new bond when my bond gets renewed?
When you pay for your bond, we will email you a paid invoice. You’ll also get a notification about whether or not the bond requires a renewal document to be sent out. Most bonds are continuous unless cancelled, and remain in effect just by paying the premium. Although you may not receive a physical bond or renewal document, the state is still notified that the bond remains in effect and that you are in good standing with the bond.
How will I be notified that my bond is up for renewal?
A statement will be automatically mailed to you approximately 1-2 months prior to the expiration date. You will also receive two email reminders. If the bond is close to expiring or being cancelled, we will then give you a phone call reminder.
Please make sure your mailing address, email, and phone number is up to date with us. If you need to update any of your contact information, please contact us.
How often do bonds have to be renewed?
Most bonds renew annually, but it depends on the bond type and what the principal requests.
What happens if I don’t renew or pay my bond?
Your bond would be cancelled due to non-payment and a notice of cancellation will be sent directly to the obligee (the state/agency that required you to obtain the bond).
My bond was cancelled but I still need it! What do I do?
Most bonds can be reinstated once cancelled, but only within a certain time frame. Typically there is a 30-day grace period in which the bond can be reinstated. Once we receive payment, we will send out a notice of reinstatement directly to the obligee and your bond will be in effect once more.
The final expiration date will be listed on the cancellation. If that date has passed and we have not yet received payment, you would have to file a new bond and start the process over by submitting a new application.
How do I know if I still need my bond or not?
You would need to check with the obligee to see if they still require a bond to be on file for you. If they no longer require the bond, please let us know in writing by contacting us.
How can I cancel my bond?
Please contact us with your bond number stating that you would like to cancel the bond.
