Why do I need this bond?
Georgia insurance counselor bonds are required to guarantee that principals (counselors) faithfully provide all services for which they are contracted in compliance with the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (section 33-23-7) and Section 120-2-3-.18 of the Georgia Insurance Regulations.
If the principal violates these terms, the bond protects the state and consumers from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond.

Insurance counselor surety bonds in Georgia remain effective until canceled and must be renewed each year. The surety may cancel the bond at any time by providing the Commissioner of Insurance with a written notice no less than 60 days in advance of the cancellation’s effective date.
