What’s the fine print?

Public adjuster bonds in Kentucky 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 giving written notice of cancellation to both the principal and the Commissioner of the Department of Insurance. Cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the receipt of said notice.

Kentucky financial responsibility bond forms cover agents, public adjusters, consultants, surplus line brokers and life settlement providers/brokers, so applicants should make sure to indicate the appropriate license type on the bond form.

All bonds in Kentucky are subject to a 1.8% state surcharge.
