With Jet, a refund is provided should there be unused time left on the bond purchase on annual terms.

For Janitorial Services on a monthly plan with Jet, we stop payment immediately once our coverage is no longer needed.

What Does a Janitorial Service Bond Cover?

The Janitor Bond from Jet covers the cost to replace any cash or possession that is stolen from a client’s residence or business. Whether the crime was committed by an employee or the business owner, Jet will cover the damages.

There are several things not covered by the bond:

Temporary employees are covered only in the event when a foreman in on the jobsite.

Before Jet, or any surety company, is able to make a payment for the loss sustained a criminal conviction must have occurred against the guilty party. 

What Happens When a Janitor Service Needs to Make a Claim on the Bond?

The janitor service must provide Jet notice of the theft within 15 days of the occurrence.Eventually we will need a detailed account of what was stolen and the amount necessary to reimburse the affected party. Evidence of the conviction will need to be provided as well. In North Carolina, documentation of an indictment is required in lieu of a conviction. 

Once Jet has the proper documentation required to make a claim payment, we will send a check directly to the Janitor Service. Should the theft have been committed by the owner or an officer of the Janitor Service, the reimbursement check will go directly to the affected party.

How Does the Application Process Work With Jet?

How Does a Janitor Service Renew Their Bond?

With the monthly option, there is no renewal process. As long as automatic payments come through the bond coverage remains active.

For annual payment terms Jet will send notice prior to the expiration date and Janitor Services need only to make payment to renew coverage.

How Does a Janitor Service Adjust Coverage?

Any time there is a change in the number of employees, Jet must be notified. For those on monthly payment, Jet will simply lower or raise the payment amount accordingly. Janitor Services on annual bond terms will either receive a prorated refund or owe an additional amount for the coverage needed from that point until the bond’s expiration date occurs. 

The same applies conditions apply if there is a need to reduce or increase the bonding coverage.
