Why do I need this bond?

By purchasing a public adjuster bond in Ohio, the principal (public adjuster) is held accountable to any insured party whose claim he/she is handling, as provided in section 3901-1-24 of the Ohio Administrative Code.

If the principal violates the terms of the bond, the surety will compensate harmed parties for damages suffered up to the full amount of the bond. If damages occur, the principal must reimburse the surety for any money paid out in the claim.

What’s the fine print?

Public adjuster bonds in Ohio remain in effect until canceled or claimed against. However, the surety has the right to cancel the bond at any time by giving written notice to the Commissioner of Insurance via registered mail with the cancellation’s effective date. Notice must be sent at least 60 days prior to the effective date of the cancellation. During that 60 day period, the principal can still have a claim filed against them until the cancellation is in full effect.
