Hundreds of Surety Bonds Are Due for Renewal Between Now and the End of 2017. Is Your Customer’s One of Them?

Home » Hundreds of Surety Bonds Are Due for Renewal Between Now and the End of 2017. Is Your Customer’s One of Them?

Not all surety bonds expire on fixed dates; the vast majority expire one year after issuance. But with that said, there are a healthy number of licensing requirements for local, statewide, and even federal surety bonds that do expire on the same date every year, regardless of when the bond was issued.

surety bond renewals

And since we recommend beginning the surety bond renewal process well in advance of expiration (60-90 days if possible), there’s no time like the present to review those upcoming expirations that will impact your customers between now and the end of the year.

Tip: December is by far the busiest month for fixed surety bond renewals as many licenses expire with the end of the calendar year. If your customer has a bond that renews in December, it’s especially important to get started early. Bond providers and obligees often experience backlogs due to renewal congestion or shortened holiday hours.
