How Do I Get a Lost Instrument Surety Bond in North Dakota?

Close up of a stock certificate

A Lost Instrument Surety Bond is required in North Dakota if you own a valuable instrument that has been lost, stolen or destroyed. The bond protects the original issuer from any financial loss as a result of issuing a duplicate. Often the issuing institution will require you to complete an affidavit attesting to the fact that you have not or will not benefit from the original instrument.

The most common types of lost instruments are money orders, cashier’s checks and certified checks.

Other examples of lost instruments can be:


  • Common Stock Certificate
  • Check or Cashier’s Check
  • Money Order
  • Other Financial Instruments and Securities
  • Preferred Stock Certificate
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Certificate of Deposit
  • Bankbook

  • There are two types of Lost Instrument Bonds:

  • Fixed Penalty Bonds- instruments whose value remains the same over time.
  • Open Penalty Bonds- instruments whose value can fluctuate and change over time.
