The Department of Business and Industry requires the Premium Finance Company License to be renewed on or before March 1st of each year, and your surety bond must be active to be approved so Jet’s monthly payment plan is a great option for companies that want to achieve a seamless renewal process. All you have to do is set up your preferred account for continuous payments and your bond will remain active for as long as you’d like. 

Which Nevada Businesses Need the $50,000 Premium Finance Company Bond?

According to the Division of Insurance, companies that wish to engage in the business of financing premiums and enter into premium finance agreements with insureds, or that acquire premium finance agreements in the State of Nevada, must be licensed and bonded with the Department of Business and Industry.

Jet can take care of filing your bond for you at no additional cost! However, if you would prefer to take care of this step yourself, you can select that option at checkout. The Nevada Division of Insurance requires the Premium Finance Company Bond to be filed with their Department of Business and Industry and the mailing address below.

If you are a first-time applicant, all your required documents for your license application can be found on the “Premium Finance” webpage.

Those who are enrolled in Jet’s monthly payment plan won’t have to worry about renewing their bond! Your bond will remain active with the Nevada Division of Assurance as long as payments are continually received by Jet from your preferred account. As for those who chose to pay in full and upfront, Jet will send you a renewal invoice far in advance of your bond term expiration date via mail and email. We don’t charge renewal fees and just need standard payment to keep your bond active for another term.

In cases where you may need to cancel your bond, you can send us a written cancellation request to bonddept@jetsurety.com at any time. Once received, Jet will notify the DOI’s Department of Business and Industry of your bond termination. If accepted, the liability of your bond will be released within 90 days of our notice.

Jet will require monthly plan bondholders to make payments for the mandated liability period as your bond is technically still active during this time. All future payments with Jet will cease once this requirement has been fulfilled. 

As for refunds, if you purchased the bond in full and cancel early, we’ll return any unused premium to you as soon as your bond has been officially released by the Nevada Division of Insurance.

How Does a Nevada Business Owner Avoid Premium Finance Company Bond Claims?

Premium finance companies and their employees are obligated to follow all license regulations pursuant to Chapter 686A of the Nevada Revised Code. Violations of these rules may lead to the Commissioner of Insurance suspending or completely revoking the company’s license. Large fines, civil action, and a bond claim are also possible repercussions.

Violations that may result in a claim on the Premium Finance Company Bond include acts of dishonesty, willful misrepresentation, and committing fraud. For example, inducing an insured to more than one insurance agreement that is not needed in order to charge for more is a license violation and is subject to a bond claim. Any damaged client of the premium finance company may file an official complaint with the Division of Insurance, but the Commissioner can only inflict license penalties onto the company and mandate them to pay the party for losses incurred. If the licensee refuses, a civil action may be pursued. In cases where a Nevada State court rules in favor of the claimant, the surety bond will be tapped to cover the financial damages caused due to the company’s fraudulent or negligent behavior. 

If you receive a court-ordered bond claim notice, contact Jet as soon as possible. To begin the claims process, we will need you to provide us with all available info and documentation for our own investigation of the accused violation(s).

Jet is legally obligated per the Premium Finance Company Bond form to pay legitimate claims. Claim payouts will not exceed the $50,000 bond limit. You, the owner of the premium finance company, are ultimately held responsible for your own actions and the actions of your employees. Therefore you must reimburse Jet for the claim payment made on your behalf. Failure to uphold this obligation will result in future difficulties acquiring surety bonds in the State of Nevada which are typically required to gain licensure status in the insurance industry.
