Wyoming public officials, whether appointed or elected, may be required to obtain a surety bond as a condition of assuming office.
This requirement is typically administered by the state’s Attorney General Office.
This surety bond is available for public officials across all categories as required by Wyoming.
Applicants (or candidates!) for the Wyoming public official bond are automatically approved for any amount up to and including a $100,000 surety bond requirement.
This approval is granted because there is no credit check inquiry to qualify.
When you call us, to issue your public official bond we’ll need the following:
Once your bond is approved and the premium paid, our agency issues the bond to you immediately, along with a Power of Attorney (POA) form.
Upon receipt by mail (or by internet, if the state will accept it), you’ll sign your bond as Principal, and then file it with the state entity requiring the bond.
The Wyoming public official bond is issued for one year; however, if your term has a definite period, you may wish to purchase the bond for the entire office term.
Although doing so will be more costly upfront, there is a savings over paying from one year to the next. And the savings continues to increase for each additional year your surety bond's premium is prepaid..
The rate of savings will be determined by the amount of your bond requirement.
Also, the wording of the surety bond is typically written to assume that it’s a onetime payment for your full term of office.
Like your oath of office, but with a financial guarantee, the Wyoming public official bond is a pledge that you will faithfully execute your office.
Moreover, according to Wyoming Statutes 9-1-102 (iii), your public official bond is a financial guarantee that you will state records, money, and property will be turned over to your successor in office.
