Are you having difficulty obtaining employment because of something negative in your past? Are you seen as a “risky” job candidate because of a poor credit score or an irregular work history? The Federal Bonding program can help assure employers that you are a safe bet for a position.

The Federal Bonding program helps “at-risk” or hard-to-place jobseekers obtain employment. Our bonding representatives can provide potential employers a fidelity bond, which is a special type of insurance that protects employers from employee dishonesty resulting in loss of money or property. Employers are more willing to hire a job applicant who is seen as “at-risk” if he or she has a fidelity bond.

The Federal Bonding program is sponsored by the US Department of Labor in partnership with Travelers Property Casualty Insurance Company.
