Why do I need this bond?
By posting a Texas bond of administrator or service company for a workers’ compensation self-insured group, principals guarantee to perform all duties and obligations lawfully and ethically. If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Bonds of administrator or service company for a workers’ compensation self-insured group in Texas remain in full force and effect. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the Commissioner of the Texas Department of Insurance and the principal at least 60 days prior to the effective cancellation date.
