What is an Insurance Broker Bond?
It is one of the major requirements to become a licensed insurance broker in the State of North Carolina.
A surety bond is a legally binding contract that will provide a guarantee to the North Carolina Department of Insurance that the insurance broker will faithfully perform his or her obligations.
This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- That the insurance broker will provide a detailed report of the monies or premiums collected to any person who is requesting the broker to obtain insurance
- That the insurance broker will submit the said report to the licensed insurer or agent who will provide the coverage
- That the insurance broker will provide the premium finance company or any association of insurers a complete report as well
Failure to comply with the aforementioned conditions, as well as the rest of the bond’s conditions, will be a ground for a surety bond claim.
