What is a bond verification certificate?
A bond verification certificate is essentially a form letter signed by a surety that lists the surety name, bond number, amount, principal and obligee, and current period of coverage. It is not a copy of the bond or a copy of an invoice.
Is it necessary to submit a new parental guaranty each year with the annual report?
The language of the parental guaranty states the guaranty is continuous, so it is not necessary to complete a new form each year.
Can an initial application or renewal application for a TPA be submitted through NIPR?

Is a countersignature required on a bond?
Pursuant to Bulletin 08-011, "all insurance policies covering Nevada risks must still be countersigned by a duly licensed and appointed Nevada producer; but, both Nevada licensed and appointed resident and nonresident producers may countersign the policy.” If the power of attorney and countersigning agent are the same person, both lines must still be signed on the original bond. Countersignatures are not required on riders that alter the original bond.
