A Lost Instrument Surety Bond is required in Pennsylvania for any lost, stolen or destroyed valuable document or instrument that you may own. The bond protects the original issuer from any financial loss as a result of issuing a duplicate. Most often the original issuer will require an Affidavit of Lost Instrument and a bond prior to re-issuance of the document or instrument in order to protect themselves from any loss.

Examples of Lost Instruments:

Lost Instruments are stock certificates, as well as:

  • Preferred Stock Certificate
  • Money Order
  • Cashier’s Check
  • Any Other Financial Securities
  • Unclaimed Property
  • Checks
  • Certificates of Deposit
  • Common Stock Certificate
  • Savings Bankbook

  • The surety bond is based on the type of instrument you are replacing:

  • Fixed Penalty Bonds have a fixed value such as a certified check or money order.
  • Open Penalty Bonds have a varying market value, such as a common stock certificate.

    How Much Will This Bond Cost?

    The cost is called a premium that you pay for your bond, and that cost depends on the type of bond you need (open or fixed penalty) and the value your instrument. Fixed and open penalty bonds start as low as 1.5% with good credit. Let our Surety Bond Specialists provide you with a no-obligation quote today.
