This guide is designed to serve obligees who may want to verify the authenticity of surety bonds that they are being asked to accept. The most reliable way to authenticate a surety bond is to contact the issuing surety company directly. However, it is often difficult to ascertain the correct address, telephone number or person to contact at the surety.
Accordingly, this guide contains a list of SFAA surety company members that have volunteered to be included together with information as to how they can be contacted for the purposes of authenticating a bond. Since participation in this program is voluntary, not every surety company is listed.
