Insurance broker bonds helps protect consumers against any acts of fraud, dishonesty, misrepresentation, or acts of omission by an insurance broker.

A $10,000 surety bond is required before conducting business as an insurance broker in California. Most bond providers charge an annual bond premium that varies.

Insurance broker bonds are legally-binding contracts between three parties:

  • TheĀ obligeeā€”is the government agency requiring the insurance broker bond
  • TheĀ principalā€”the broker purchasing the bond
  • TheĀ suretyā€”the underwriter providing the insurance broker bond
  • A surety bond is not an insurance policy. If the broker does not comply with the conditions of the bond, a consumer, supplier, or an employee may file a claim against the bond. Brokers are liable for their own contractual obligations and must repay the surety bond for any damages incurred.
