What Is a Lost Instrument Bond?

Close up of a stock certificate

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

Types of bonds:

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

  • The most common types of lost instruments are common and preferred stock certificates.

    Other examples of lost instruments are:

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