The Surrogate, Judge of the Surrogate's Court, has appointed you as a fiduciary. Pursuant to New Jersey statutes, N.J.S.A. 3B:15-1, the order of appointment includes a requirement that you furnish a bond, to secure your faithful performance of your fiduciary duties on behalf of the estate, in a sum and with proper conditions and sureties, having due regard to the value of the estate. 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. You are free to purchase this bond from any qualified source. The law establishes minimum terms and conditions for indemnity and collection, which must be included in each bond. The other terms, such as 'premium' and 'duration' are between the bonding company and you. 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 to you directly from the bonding agent. 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. 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. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 2 ADMIN CTA BOND Page 1 of 4 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com State of New Jersey Essex County Surrogate's Court In the matter of the Estate of: _______________________________________, Deceased AKA: _________________________________ Docket No.: ______________ } ADMINISTRATOR C.T.A.
