Bonding Program

Who is Eligible: Any at-risk job applicant, including: ex-offenders, recovering substance abusers (alcohol or drugs), welfare recipients and other persons having poor financial credit, economically disadvantaged youth and adults who lack a work history, individuals dishonorably discharged from the military, and others.

Anyone who cannot get a job without bonding is eligible for help by the Federal Bonding Program. All individuals who have, in the past, committed a fraudulent or dishonest act, are eligible for bonding services.

Either the employer or the job applicant can request a bond issuance. The bond is issued instantly and requires no forms or other papers.

Before a bond is issued, the applicant must have already received a job offer and the employer must provide an official start date to work.
