What does bonding insurance do for you?
Bonding is not insurance. If you provide service to a client, and steal from them, and are convicted of the crime, the bonding company will pay back the client for your theft. Then you must pay the bonding company back for the amount of the payment, plus interest..
So, what does bonding do for you – NOTHING. For your client – insures they’ll get payment if you steal from them and are convicted of it, after a duo year delay. They could take you to court instead and save the hassle – but that doesn’t insure that they get paid even if they win..
You need to go to a local, independent agent, who can get you embarked on the bond underwriting process. There are literally dozens of kinds of bonds – anywhere from a notary bond, to a public official bond, then with contractors it’s payment, spectacle and bid bonds. All these bonds do different things, taylored for a specific need or bonding requirement.

Response by BipolarAttorney 02/05/08 .
Without knowing the state, in which you are operating, I cannot say for sure, but I am guessing there is not a particular law that requires it, but rather the individuals, for which you are house-sitting, require it to ensure you are able to pay for any harm to the property that you may cause. By being bonded and insured you are ensuring there are funds available to pay for any harm you may cause.

The procedure for obtaining a Life and Health license varies from state to state. The very first decision to make is whether you choose a classroom setting or a self-paced online course for your pre-licensing probe. In either script a significant portion of your time will be spent on self-study. In the classroom situation you typically probe from provided books at home, subsequently attending the classroom session at a predetermined date. The classroom is a review of the material, tips on passing the exam, a practice test, and an chance to ask questions. In the online courses, you work through a series of modules with quizzes along the way to reinforce the material covered. At the end of the online course you progress through practice exams until you are achieving 80% or better. When you have successfully ended your pre-licensing course, you schedule a date to take the state exam. If you fail the test the very first time around you may retest until you pass; the required interval inbetween tests again varies from state to state. At least one online course assures that you will pass the test, meaning that if you don’t, they will pay the fees to retest. Once you have passed your exam, you will apply for your license and pay the required fee. Once you have your license you can become appointed with an insurance carrier to sell their products. Check with your state department of insurance to obtain a list of certified vendors for pre-licensing courses.
