Because surety bonds are contracts that outline legal obligations, the official process for updating or changing information on your form depends on a few factors:
- Has the bond been filed?
- What is the exact change needed?
- Have you spoken with the entity holding your bond (also known as the "obligee") to verify if they have any specific instructions required to make this change?
- Is the obligee requiring a new replacement bond, or will they accept a change "rider" document to attach to the original paperwork?
- When does the change need to go into effect?
Any time you need to update or change information on your bond form, simply call 1 (800) 308-4358 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and one of our friendly representatives will be happy to help. Having the answers to the above questions before you call allows us to make the change for you as soon as possible.
As with all forms of insurance, clients are never permitted to make changes to their own bond forms without submitting the change request to their provider for review, approval, and issuance. Any changes made to a bond form by a client are not legally binding.
