How does a California Qualifying Individual (BQI) Bond work?

This bond has three parties:

Principal – qualifying individual

Obligee – State of California

Surety – surety bond company

The Principal is required to perform all the pre-determined conditions stated on the bond. The Obligee will be the bond’s beneficiary. The role of the surety is to assure the Obligee that the Principal is capable of fulfilling the obligations covered by the bond. The Surety will also provide security through an extension of credit to the Principal. When a claim is made against the bond, the Surety will first verify the claim by identifying the laws that have been violated. The Surety will ensure that the obligee will be paid if the claim is valid. After the payment has been settled by the surety, the Principal will be asked to reimburse the said payment.
