Nearly all SuretyBonds.com clients can complete the bonding process without providing any physical or scanned paperwork. Most application documents that require signatures can be signed digitally using our DocuSign service, which you can learn more about here.
However, depending on the nature of your bond request and/or overall client account, your underwriter might require a notarized, physical indemnity agreement be completed before your bond can be issued.
Reasons a notarized, physical indemnity agreement might be required include, but are not limited to:
- Your bond type has a high risk for claims
- Your account contains a large number of different bond types
- Your account contains a large amount of aggregate liability/coverage
- Your identity or the identity of other indemnitors cannot be easily verified
If a notarized, physical indemnity needs to be provided, our team will provide you with detailed instructions. Any time a notarized, physical document is required, it must be completed 100% accurately and returned to our office before your bond can be issued.
If you have questions about indemnification or how to sign an indemnity agreement, call 1 (800) 308-4358 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and one of our friendly representatives will be happy to walk you through the process.
