A Lost Cashier’s Check Bond is a form of Lost Instrument Surety Bond. The bond is required from the issuing bank when a cashier’s check has been lost or misplaced.
The bank cannot issue a stop payment on the cashier’s check, so in order to re-issue a new cashier’s check, they require a surety bond. If the lost check is brought to the bank and is endorsed, they must pay out on the check, in addition to the new re-issued check. The surety bond prevents the bank from the loss of both checks being cashed. If both checks are cashed, then the bank can collect payment from the surety company.
If there is a claim placed on your bond and you are found at fault, (meaning the surety has determined the bank’s claim on the bond is valid) the surety company will pay out. However, you will have to pay the the surety back.
