Why do I need this bond?

By posting a Kentucky financial responsibility surety bond, principals (insurance professionals) agree to conduct business according to the Kentucky Revised Statutes referenced on the bond form. If a principal fails to do so, the bond protects those damaged by the principal’s actions. Harmed individuals can make a claim on the bond, and the surety will pay reparations up to the bond amount. The principal must then reimburse the surety for any claims paid.

For more information about insurance industry bonds in Kentucky, contact a surety expert online.

What’s the fine print?

Kentucky financial responsibility bonds remain in force until the principal’s license is revoked or otherwise terminated, or until the bond is canceled by the surety. The surety can cancel the bond by providing written notice of termination on Form 99-5 to both the principal and commissioner at least 30 days prior to the effective termination date.

All signatures on the bond form must be acknowledged by a commissioned notary public.
