What are Surety Bonds?

Surety Bonds are financial instruments that promise to pay a party (obligee) a certain sum of money if an insured cannot fulfill the terms of a contract or obligation.
Surety bonds are often required in construction activities and government work.

For example, a state utility company may require its general contractors to have payment bonds to guarantee that sub-contractors and suppliers will be paid.
There are many types of surety bonds.
