The reimbursement can be up to the penal sum of your bond, which is between $5,000 and $25,000 in this case. Initially, it may be your surety that takes over the costs. However, as per the bond indemnity agreement, you are fully liable for the payments. Thus, surety bond claims are a serious financial threat to your business. It’s best to avoid them, as they can create obstacles for your business in the future as well.
