When you apply for a lost or damaged instrument replacement, the issuing authority will ask you to submit a surety bond to ensure the following:

  • Indemnify the issuing authority in case another person files a claim, actions, or any charges once the instrument has been issued.
  • Act as an assurance that you will surrender the new instrument to the issuing authority or surety for proper disposal if you’ve found the instrument that went missing.


What is the Lost Instrument Bond amount? 

The bond amount varies widely. It will depend on the value of the instrument that you have lost. The surety bond premium, however, will depend on the value of the instrument, as well as your credit score.

Instruments that have a value of $5,000 or less can have a surety bond premium of $100.

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