A Lost Instrument Surety Bond is required in Alaska if you own a valuable document that has been lost, stolen or destroyed. The bond protects the original issuer from any financial loss as a result of issuing a duplicate and replaces the document.

  • Fixed Penalty Bonds are for items whose value remains the same over time.

  • Open Penalty Bonds are for items whose market value fluctuates.


  • The most common types of lost instruments are common and preferred stock certificates, money orders, checks and cashier's checks.

    Other examples of lost instruments are:

  • Membership Certificate
  • Check or Cashier's Check
  • Money Order
  • Warehouse Receipt
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Certificate of Deposit
  • Bankbook
  • Other Financial Instruments and Securities
