About Fidelity


 

 

 

 

 

A fidelity bond is a bond which indemnifies the insured for loss caused by the dishonest and fraudulent acts of its covered employees. In addition, a fidelity bond typically covers the insured against the following:

  • Forgery or Alteration;
  • Loss inside the premises caused by theft, disappearance and destruction, and robbery and safe burglary;
  • Loss outside the premises caused by the robbery of a messenger.


These coverages sometimes are referred to as Crime Coverage.


Annually writers of Fidelity and Crime Coverage incur over $300 million in losses by protecting organizations from risks that are present each day they are open for business: employee dishonesty, robbery and burglary.


Fidelity bonds are divided into two primary categories: financial institutions (for example, banks, stock brokers, insurance companies and finance companies) and mercantile and governmental entities (non-financial institutions). The coverage needs of these categories differ and SFAA has developed standard forms that meet the particular coverage needs of each group.
