NOW, THEREFORE, it is understood and agreed that: 1. In the event the Principal, as a self-insured employer under the Workers' Compensation Law, fails to pay any of its obligations incurred under the Workers' Compensation Law or the rules and regulations issued thereunder, the Surety binds itself to be primarily liable for and on its own account shall pay and discharge any such obligations to the extent of its remaining liability under this Surety Bond forthwith, after written demand by FSIGA, served personally or by certified mail upon the Surety. FSIGA in its sole discretion may direct in said demand that such sums as may be deemed necessary to secure and discharge any of the aforesaid obligations of the Principal, be paid by the Surety to FSIGA or to a designated claimant or entitled beneficiary or recipient, or that the Surety shall undertake or continue the handling of claims against the Principal and make any appearances before a Judge of Compensation Claims or other court of competent jurisdiction, as an interested party and on its own behalf, the right of FSIGA to make such demand and directions therein being superior and prior to the right of any interested party, beneficiary or recipient. 2.

The liability of the Surety shall nevertheless continue as to any and all obligations of the Principal as a self-insured employer under the Workers' Compensation Law to the extent of the liability of the Surety under this Surety Bond, until the acceptance by FSIGA of any new bond or security from or on behalf of the Principal as a substitute for this Surety Bond.
