What is a surety bond?

A surety bond is essentially a financial guarantee involved in a three-party agreement. It acts like a safety net to ensure a contractual obligation is fulfilled. Here’s a breakdown of how it works:

The Parties Involved:

  • Principal: The person or business who needs the guarantee, like the subcontractor in your case.
  • Surety: The insurance company that issues the guarantee.
  • Obligee: The party seeking the guarantee, often a government agency or the general contractor in your example.

The Guarantee: The surety company guarantees the obligee that the principal will perform their obligations as outlined in a contract or comply with a law. If the principal fails to do so, the obligee can make a claim on the bond, and the surety company will be financially responsible up to the bond amount. However, If the surety company pays a claim on the bond, it will seek restitution from the bond principal.

Think of it like this: you (the principal) are borrowing money from a friend (the surety) to assure your roommate (the obligee) that you’ll pay your share of the rent. If you don’t, your friend will cover the cost for you, but you’ll eventually need to pay them back. While there are thousands of individual surety bond requirements in the U.S., there are generally two main categories of surety bonds:

  • Contract Surety Bonds: These ensure a specific contract is completed as agreed, such as construction bonds.
  • Commercial Surety Bonds: These guarantee various obligations, like license and permit bonds or court appearance bonds. is a service of AssuredPartners one of the largest and fastest growing insurance agencies in the nation.
