State Bond Information

With over 200 surety bond requirements, there are several departments and divisions across cities, counties, and the state of Texas ensuring a safe environment for residents and businesses. Surety bonds are mandated for various occupations and operations to guarantee restitution is available through a third party (Jet Insurance Company) should the person or business fail to operate in a contractual, legal, and/or ethical manner.

Here's an instance where Jet would make a payout to a claimant—imagine a motor vehicle dealer tampers with a car's odometer to sell it at a higher price. The customer finds out and files a claim on the dealer's license bond. Jet would provide payment to the customer up to the bond limit, and the dealer is then responsible to pay Jet back. Information on how to avoid claims and the claim process can be found in our Surety Bond Claims Guide.

Jet's process allows you to get to work or continue working without any added stress. You are purchasing directly from the surety company, with no middlemen. Most surety bonds can be purchased online in a matter of minutes with the option of convenient monthly payments or discounted annual and multi-year rates.

Jet is approved to issue surety bonds in Texas (License #13765895).
