Surety Bonds are a three-party agreement between a principal, an obligee, and a surety.
- Principal: the one who needs the bond
- Obligee: the one who requires the bond and is protected by the bond
- Surety: the one who issues the bond
Fidelity Bonds are used to protect companies against financial losses. These are usually optional to obtain, but certain businesses are more at risk than others and are strongly suggested to purchase Fidelity bonds for their company. Companies that are more at risk are:
- Cash carriers
- Messenger/courier services
- In-home service providers (nursing care, pet sitting, security, electronic-installation)
A surety bond binds these three individuals together in a contract. If a principal is unable to fulfill his/her duties, the surety will assume responsibility and compensate the obligee. The responsibility is ultimately the principal’s, though, and once the surety has paid the obligee, they will go after the principal for reimbursement.
