Here at, our thoughts are with those in the Northeast who have been — and continue to be — affected by Hurricane Sandy.

As cleanup and rebuilding efforts begin for Hurricane Sandy, is here for all of your bond insurance needs. Just as we saw an increased demand for Missouri contractor bonds following the tornado that tore through Joplin in May of 2011, we expect to see an influx in the demand for a variety of bonds in the Northeast as part of the Hurricane Sandy recovery process. Why? Because New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other states require professionals in certain industries to be bonded before they be legally licensed to work.

We know that you don’t need any added stress right now as you return to your daily routine, so we’ve compiled a quick guide to some of the bonds we expect to see an increased demand for.

Public adjuster bonds

  • New York and New Jersey public adjuster bonds are required in the amount of $10,000 and can be freely written without a credit check for just $100.
  • Pennsylvania public adjuster bonds are required in the amount of $40,000 and can be freely written without a credit check for just $100.

Contractor license bonds

  • Most cities have unique requirements for contractor license bonds. For example, Maryland requires a $20,000 bond before contractors can be licensed to work on home improvement projects.
  • Whether you work in Connecticut, Delaware, North Carolina or another surrounding state, check with the local government agency that regulates your industry. Or, give us a call at 1 (800) 308-4358, and we can help you find your required bond amount.
  • Generally, the cost of a contractor license bond is credit based, so our expert surety specialists will work with several of our underwriting markets to find you the best rate possible.
