How does a New York Self-Insurer Disability Benefits Law Bond work?

This bond will serve as legal agreement among three parties:

Principal  –  individual or group self-insurer

Obligee  –  Chairman of the Workers' Compensation Board of the State of New York

Surety  –  Surety  bond  provider

Through this bond, the Surety is guaranteeing that the Principal will faithfully and honestly perform his or her legal obligations. The Surety will also extend its credit to the Principal in case the Principal fails to pay the sums due to an individual or group of individuals.

If such happens, those who will be harmed can file a claim against the bond for the purpose of recovering the amount that the Principal failed to pay. The  claim  will  first  be  verified  by  the  Surety  before  it  is  settled.  Once  the  Surety  has  settled  the  claim,  the  Principal  will  reimburse  the  Surety  for  the  payments  made.

 

You can apply any time of the day. Start your application process HERE!
