How does a New York Instruments Budget Planner Bond work?

Parties to the bond:

Principal – budget planner license applicant
Obligee – Superintendent of Banks of the State of New York
Surety – Surety bond provider

This bond will protect the debtor against losses if the principal violates any of his or her contractual obligations. The bond will remain void if the Principal fulfills all the required duties without any violation. If the opposite happens, the Obligee will seek compensation for the losses incurred by filing a claim against the bond. The Surety will pay the Obligee, but the Principal must reimburse the Surety after.
