The Pension Reform Act of 1974 (also known as ERISA - Employee Retirement and Income Security Act) states that the funds of pension or profit sharing plans must be protected under a fidelity bond for 10% of the amount of funds handled. As an example, a person who manages a profit sharing program that involves $250,000 in funds must post a bond for $25,000. The Commercial Blanket fidelity bond available from our surety partner Surety Bonding Company of America satisfies this requirement at a reasonable cost.
Many companies offer pension plans and/or profit sharing programs as part of a benefit package for their employees. These programs are managed by appointed individuals associated with that company's plan, known as fiduciaries. To protect the plan and the money in these funds from fraud and dishonesty, the appointed fiduciaries need to be bonded.
This bond is purchased for a 3 year term and must be 10% of the amount of QUALIFIED funds handled. Below are the rates for each bond amount available for this bond. This bond does NOT cover non-qualified assets. If you do have non-qualified assets you would like covered, please complete the PDF application that will need to be sent to underwriting for review.

I was shopping for a surety bond for the first time and having trouble communicating with several different companies. When I contacted South Coast Surety they responded quickly and performed the transaction quick and easy. I might have been able to find a lower price, but their professionalism was worth a couple extra dollars.

I reached out to South Coast Surety, they sent me an application, paid our premium and had our bond sent to us immediately. Everyone I spoke to and emailed was courteous, attentive and responded very quickly. We will most definitely continue to get all of our bond services from South Coast.
