What’s the fine print?
To make a claim on a Dominion Virginia Power utility bond, the utility company must provide the surety with copies of the applicable unpaid invoices or business records. The documents must be sent to the surety in writing. After receiving the documents, the surety has 30 days to respond to the request with a payment in full. If all applicable documents have been provided and the surety fails to pay the utility company within 30 days, a late fee of 12% per annum will be assessed on the principal’s outstanding balance until it is paid in full.
The surety can cancel the bond at any time after the expiration of the 2-year bond term. To cancel the bond, the surety must give written notice to Dominion Virginia Power 60 days prior to the effective termination date.
