The Evaluation of a Surety Bond Application

The power of attorney permits the agent the ability to sign the surety bond on behalf of the surety company giving the agent legal authorization to bind the surety to the bond obligations.

Underwriters are responsible for reviewing the application and supporting documents to make a valid underwriting decision. An underwriter takes many things into consideration when reviewing an application for a bond. These considerations may include: The range of obligations indicated in the contract covered by the bond; The principal’s ability to perform these obligations; and The nature of the principal’s performance. The underwriter’s decision also includes deciding the premium for the bond which is associated with a state filed rate. If there are additional conditions an applicant must meet before a surety company will write the bond, the Underwriter will communicate these conditions to the agent.
