Why do I need this bond?
Utility deposit surety bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (customers) pay for all utility services received on time and in full. If the principal does not adhere to these terms and develops an accumulation of unpaid bills for electric services, this bond acts as a safeguard for the American Electric Power company against financial loss up to the full amount of the bond.
If payments are not submitted in a timely manner, American Electric Power will send a letter to the applicant’s insurance company requesting payment. They will also review the applicant’s account periodically to monitor timely payments.

What’s the fine print?
American Electric Power utility bonds remain in full force and effect until canceled by the surety. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice via certified mail (return receipt requested) to the utility company 90 days prior to the effective date of termination.
