How does a New York Self-Insurers' Representative Bond work?

This  bond  will  serve  as  an  agreement  among  the Principal (self-insurers’ representative), Obligee  (People of the State of New York), and Surety (surety  bond  provider).

Through this bond, the Surety is assuring the Chairman of the Workers' Compensation Board of the State of New York that the Principal will perform the required obligations. If  the  Principal  fails  to  do  any  of  the  bonded obligations, the  Obligee  can  file  a  bond  claim.

The Surety will first check if the claim is valid.  Once  the  Surety  has  settled  the  claim,  the  Principal  will  reimburse  the  Surety  for  the  payments  made.
