Subject: Premium Grace Period During COVID-19

If a Service Insurance Company surety bond policyholder (a/k/a Principal) is experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, they may be entitled to an extension to pay premium without a late fee through July 31st, 2020.

If a surety bond policyholder requires an extension, Service Insurance will not impose any late fees or report them to a credit reporting or debt collection agency during the grace the period. Late payments will not be considered in determining rates for any future surety bond policy. The policyholder also has the option to pay unpaid premium in up to twelve monthly installments.

Service Insurance surety bond policyholders may contact us directly to discuss other billing options and/or alternative payment arrangements. To do so, policyholders should contact a Service Insurance Company team member at 1-888-266-3329, Ext. 101, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, to speak with a representative.
