Typically, CCI Surety handles bonds for individuals and entities that are declined by standard markets because of low credit score, financial weakness, or other difficulties. Fidelity Bonds are currently difficult to place and most candidates will need to have fairly strong credit scores and/or financial strength in order to obtain bonds. CCI Surety continues to develop the most competitive bond markets for all types of surety bonds, including Fidelity Bonds, and we will do our best to find a bonding home for your client.
