Why do I need this bond?

Surety bonds are required of Kentucky insurance agents and consultants pursuant to Kentucky Revised Statutes 304.9-105 and 304.9-330. They are issued in favor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky in order to offer financial protection should an agent or consultant be found to have violated any applicable statutes or regulations.

In the event that a claim is made against the licensee’s bond, the surety will pay up to $20,000 to settle the claim. Once the claim is settled, it becomes the responsibility of the licensee to reimburse the surety for all money paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Kentucky insurance agent and consultant bonds are continuous, meaning that they are effective as long as the licensee pays their annual premium. Once they have decided that they no longer need a license, they may opt not to renew the bond. The surety may also cancel the bond at any point during the term by providing the Department with 30 days’ written notice.
