What is Bonding?

What is Bonding?

Bonding is a promise or guarantee backed by a surety company; also known as a surety bond.

How is bonding different from an insurance policy?

Insurance is a two-party contract between the insured and the insurer (insurance company).  The point of this contract is a promise that the insured will be compensated by the insurance company if a covered loss occurs.

Bonding is a three-party contractual agreement between a Principal, Obligee and Surety.

  • The principal is the individual or business that purchases the surety bond to guarantee their future work performance.
  • Obligee is the entity that is requesting the surety bond; to reduce the likelihood of financial loss.
  • The final party to the agreement is the Surety, which is the company that provides the financial guarantee if the principal fails to fulfill the set task.

A bonding arrangement is a guarantee that if the obligation of the principal is not fulfilled, the obligee can recover its losses from the surety per the terms and conditions of the surety bond in place.

How do I secure bonding?
