Maryland Guaranteed Payment Bond

What is a Guaranteed Payment Bond?

It is a surety bond required of members of the National Electrical Contractors Association and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union No. 26 who contribute to various funds such as the following:

  • National Electrical Benefit Fund
  • Electrical Workers Local No. 26 Pension Trust Fund
  • Electrical Workers Local No. 26 Individual Account Fund
  • Electrical Workers Local 26 Joint Apprenticeship and Training Fun
  • Electrical Welfare Trust Fund

The surety bond will serve as a guarantee to the Local 26 IBEW-NECA Joint Trust Funds that the bonded member will fulfill his or her obligations. This includes promptly paying monetary contributions to the specified trust funds.
If the Principal (the member or the person who is providing the financial guarantee) misses a contribution or fails to fulfill his or her monetary obligations, the Obligee (beneficiary of the bond) will recover the amount through a bond claim.

What is the Guaranteed Payment Bond amount?

The bond amount will vary per applicant. This will be determined by the Plan Fund Office of the Local 26 IBEW-NECA Joint Trust Funds.
