Lost Instrument or Securities Bonds

When a person loses a document, certificate or instrument, the issuer will not usually deliver a duplicate until the owner of the lost instrument furnishes an indemnity bond or lost instrument or securities bond. These bonds guarantee that, should the original lost document be found, it will be returned to the surety or obligee for proper disposal.

Fiduciary Responsibility Bonds

Although ERISA does not require Fiduciary Liability Insurance, individuals with fiduciary responsibilities are highly encouraged to carry this coverage. You are a fiduciary of an employee benefit plan if you 1) are named in the plan document or are identified as a fiduciary by the sponsor of the plan; 2) exercise any discretionary authority or discretionary control with respect to the management, administrations or disposition of plan assets, 3) provide investment advice for a fee or other compensation. IFS is proud to provide Fiduciary Liability coverage along with excellent service.

Notary Public Errors and Omissions

This provides protection to the insured when they are obligated to pay for breach of duty while acting as a duly commissioned notary for any negligent act, error or omission arising out of the performance of service for others. This covers damages and legal fees.
