OFFICE OF THE SURROGATE CAMDEN COUNTY Surrogate_Name 415 Federal Street SURROGATE Camden, New Jersey 08103 http://www.njsurrogates.com/camden.htm SurrogateDeputy_Name DEPUTY SURROGATE IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING BONDS 1. The Surrogate is the Judge of the Surrogates Court. In that capacity they have appointed you as a fiduciary. Pursuant to New Jersey statutes, the order of appointment includes a requirement that you post bond. NJS 3B: 15-1. The purpose of the bond is to protect the heirs and creditors of the estate. 2. A surety bond is not insurance. You are responsible for any losses which cause the surety to make payment on your behalf. The Indemnity Agreement is your promise to repay the surety. 3. You are free to purchase this bond from any qualified source. 4. The law establishes minimum terms and conditions for indemnity and collection, which must be in each bond. The other terms, such as premium and duration are between you and the bonding company. 5. The initial premium is due when the bond application is completed. Annual premiums are due each year until the estate is closed. Those annual bills will come directly from the bonding agent. 6. If the value of the estate is reduced, you can have the bond reduced. Since the premium is determined by the amount of the bond, reducing the bond will result in a savings in most cases. 7. Please remember that the bond does not terminate at the end of the first year. If you do not notify the bonding company that the estate is closed they will continue the bond and they will bill you each year for another premium.
