What is a Mississippi Lost Instrument Bond?

Mississippi Lost Instrument BondLosing a valuable financial instrument is hard.

Replacing it by acquiring a surety bond shouldn’t be hard!

A surety bond is one of the most important requirements of having a lost instrument replaced. Issuing authorities will require you to submit this type of bond to protect them in case another person files a claim on the instrument that’s been replaced.

This surety bond will also act as an assurance that if the principal found the lost instrument after it has been replaced, the principal will surrender the new one to the issuing authority or surety for proper disposal.

Instruments are legal documents that have financial value. Some examples of these so-called important instruments are as follows:

  • Stock Certificate
  • Real Estate Certificates
  • Certificate of Deposit
  • Treasury Bills
  • Bond Futures
  • Cashier’s Check
  • Passbook


What is the amount for a Mississippi Lost Instrument Bond? 

The bond amount varies widely. The surety bond cost, however, will depend on the value of the instrument. Instruments that have a value of $5,000 or less can have a surety bond cost of $100.

For instruments that have more than $5,000 in value, the surety bond cost that you need to pay will be $20 per one thousand.
