Why do I need this bond?
Service contracts bonds in South Carolina are put in place to ensure that principals (service contract providers) conduct business in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 78 of the South Carolina Code of Laws, including properly transmitting any payment received for transmission to an insurer or another individual and applying all funds received appropriately.
If the principal fails to comply with these terms and commits any act of fraud or dishonesty in connection with contract services, the bond protects any person who sustains loss as a result of the principal’s violations up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?
South Carolina service contracts bonds remain in full force and effect until canceled. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the Director of Insurance at least 60 days prior to the effective termination date.
A notary public’s signature is required on the bond form to formally acknowledge the agreement between the principal, surety and obligee.
