What is a Guardianship Bond?



A guardianship bond is a type of fiduciary bond required from a person that has been nominated to take care of the financial matters of a person that is legally not able to take care of them on their own. The type of individuals the guardianship bond covers are people such as minors, an elderly person, and disabled persons. The bond guarantees the appointed guardian will do what is right in the financial interest of the other person.


When Are Guardianship Bonds Required?


Guardianship bonds are required when an individual needs help to take care of their financial obligations. They usually need help when they are no longer physically or mentally able to take care of matters on their own. The bond is used to legally protect the person needing assistance from possible neglect or theft by a person helping them with their finances.


How Much Does a Guardianship Bond Cost?


The cost of a guardianship bond depends on the limit of the bond ($), and the financial/credit profile of a nominee (principal). An applicant will have to pay an annual premium. This premium is usually a set percentage of the total bond amount.


How Do You Qualify for a Guardianship Bond?


You will need to apply for a guardianship bond from a bonding company (Surety) via your Ai broker. The broker can issue a bond for you, on behalf of the Surety, which you will provide to the court to complete the appointment. You will need to provide important details about the case to the Surety’s underwriting staff upon consideration of the bond. There most likely will be a soft credit check performed on you. The surety will want to make sure that you are reliable in your financial obligations.


How Are Guardian Bond Claims Handled?


In order to file a claim, the claimant must file the claim in the probate court. The filing must happen in the state that the estate is found. The person filing the claim must be able to prove that the other party has not been acting in the best interest of the claimant.
