Why do I need this bond?
By posting a California insurance broker bond, principals (insurance brokers) pledge to handle all funds received appropriately and apply them to the services and products requested by the client. If the principal or his/her solicitors and employees fail to conduct ethical and lawful business, the bond protects consumers from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Insurance broker bonds in California remain in full force and effect until the surety is released from further liability by the insurance commissioner or until the surety cancels the bond. The surety can cancel the bond by delivering written notice of cancellation to the commissioner at least 30 days prior to the effective termination date.
