If you reside in Connecticut and have a lost, stolen or destroyed valuable document or instrument, then you need a Lost Instrument Surety Bond. A lost instrument bond protects the original issuer from a financial loss as a result of issuing a duplicate document or instrument.

There are two types of lost instrument surety bonds:

1.) Fixed Penalty Bonds For instruments or documents whose value never changes.
2.) Open Penalty Bonds For instruments or documents whose value can change over a period of time.

There are different types of lost instruments, with the most familiar being common and preferred stock certificates.

Other examples of lost instruments can be:

  • Certificate of Deposit
  • Money Orders
  • Warehouse Receipt
  • Check
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Cashier's Check
  • Bankbook
  • Unclaimed Property
  • Other Financial Instruments and Securities

  • If you are unsure of what type of lost instrument bond you need, SuretyGroup.com can help. We will identify whether you need a fixed or open penalty bond and ensure that you get the bond you need.
