A fidelity bond is designed to protect your company’s assets from fraudulent or dishonest acts by your employees. Fidelity bonds can be written as part of your business insurance package or as a separate bond. Some of the fidelity bonds offered by Auto-Owners include:
- Employee Dishonesty Bonds - Protect your company’s assets from theft by an employee. This coverage can be issued on a blanket basis or by specifying individual employees or positions that handle your company’s money.
- ERISA Bonds - The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 requires trustees and pension plans to have fidelity bond coverage for the plan’s assets. An ERISA bond from Auto-Owners protects participants and beneficiaries from dishonest acts of individuals who handle pension plan benefits or 401(k) plans.
