A Surety Agency Established in 1976


J.F. McDonald Insurance Agency, Inc. provides full access to bonds for clients seeking contract and commercial surety bond support.

Contract Surety

Contract surety bond needs include bid, performance and payment bonds.

  • Bid bonds are typically required on publicly bid projects.  These bid bonds are usually a percentage of the overall bid estimate and they guarantee that, if awarded, the low bidder will enter into the contract to perform the work and provide any required performance and payment bonds.
  • Performance bonds guarantee that the principal on the bond will perform the duties required in the contract and specifications.
  • Payment bonds guarantee that the principal will pay all subcontractors and suppliers involved in the prosecution of their contract.

Commercial surety

Commercial surety bonds have various forms.
Some examples of commercial surety bonds include:

  • License and Permit Bonds
  • Supply Bonds
  • Business Services Bonds
  • Mortgage Broker Bonds
  • ERISA Bonds
  • Non-Construction Performance Bonds (i.e. Ship Building)
  • Lost Securities Bonds
  • Court Bonds
