Surety protecting business
In these tough times you need to make sure that your assets are protected. What happens if an employee steals from you or one of your checks is forged or altered?
Is there a insurance policy that can protect you from this? The answer is yes there is. A surety bond can protect you from these everyday occurrences.
This bond is typicality called a fidelity bond. A fidelity bond is more like an insurance policy than a bond because with a fidelity bond claim you do not have to pay the surety back. You need only to pay the deductible and the surety takes care of the rest. The surety company offers a wide range of products that can be added to your policy such as employee theft inside the premise as well as off site. You can add coverage for forging as well as alteration of checks. The bond amount can also be adjusted to fit your growing business needs.
The cost of fidelity bonds
You would think with the exposure to the surety that fidelity bonds would be expensive, but there actually are not. Many factors are involved to determine the cost of a fidelity bond. The rate of the surety bond is also different for each surety. A few ways a surety may determine the bond rate may be by the class of business, how many employees, cash exposure and checks and balances in place to protect the company from a claim.
In this economy protecting and securing you company’s future is vital, so protect your business with a surety bond.
