There are thousands of licensed insurance agencies that offer surety bonds. Unfortunately, the majority of them do not know the bond market well, which can lead to higher costs initially on the premium and later on claims.
There are also bond only agencies which are small operations without direct access to the best specialty programs, requiring them to broker their business to a larger agency. The easiest way to ensure you’ll find the best bond program is to go through a nationally recognized Managing General Underwriter (MGU) such as JW Surety Bonds.

As the nation’s largest volume producing MGU, we work with thousands of insurance brokers that are unable to get their clients’ bonds approved without our specialty bond programs and rates. If you apply with another agency, it may result in your applications being submitted to us, but with an unnecessary middle-man involved.
Working with JW Surety Bonds means you’re in direct contact with the decision maker for the approval of your bond. Most agencies have to provide your bond request to a carrier side underwriter, which slows the process tremendously. And further, to access specialty programs, these smaller agencies must submit your bond request to one of the few bond MGU specialists in the country. JW Surety Bonds is the nationally recognized leading volume MGU in the United States.
What bond amount are you purchasing? Did you know you could be stuck paying the full bond amount plus any legal fees? It’s important to understand when you purchase a bond you are responsible to reimburse the surety for claims, which makes it imperative you choose wisely when picking a bond agency. Our name and reputation are on the line with every bond we approve. If a claim arises on your bond, our claim advocates will work with you to ensure false claims are not paid and resolutions for legitimate ones are provided at minimal cost.
Bond agencies aren’t usually involved in the claims process; they sell you the bond, collect their commissions and move on to the next customer. Some agents don’t understand bonds well enough to properly defend you from claims, while others are simply too small to have the resources to get involved. With JW Surety Bonds, you can rest assured you’ll have the best claim specialists in the industry fighting for you.
The bond market can be difficult to properly navigate. You need the right bond, with a strong bond backing, at a competitive rate. JW Surety Bonds makes the bonding process simple.
