    What Is A Surety Bond?

    A Surety Bond is a promise to pay one party (the Obligee) a certain amount if a second party (the Principal) fails to meet some obligation, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract. The surety bond protects the Obligee against losses resulting from the Principal’s failure to meet the obligation.
