Founded in 1979, First Indemnity of America Insurance Company (FIA Surety) takes great pride in our expertise and high limits of authority. Additionally, we provide quick responses, large bond approvals and a creative approach to the business.
FIA looks beyond the traditional “Three C’s" of underwriting: Character, Capacity and Capital. We consider the merits of each applicant and are not handcuffed by the inflexible formulas traditionally used by other sureties. Our company makes a strong effort to really know our clients. FIA is able to look past the raw numbers of a business and rely on the character of the people who are in an ownership position.
In 1979, FIA commenced writing surety with the State of New Jersey. Since then, we have grown to include Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia to our ever-expanding list of states where the company has the authority to issue bonds. In New Jersey, the company is recognized as a leading independent surety. Despite our expansion growth, FIA has still maintained its ranking as a leading independent writer of surety in the Northeast.
Initially we started providing surety for small and medium size contractors. Over the course of years, the company has expanded its scope to cover all surety needs such as increased bond limits and all surety bond categories. Fueled by our passionate belief in the American dream that hard work and responsibility lead to success, FIA has adopted an underwriting philosophy to do everything possible to support our clients. FIA is rated “A-” (Excellent) by A.M. Best and “A” (Exceptional) by Demotech. We can provide bonding all across the U.S. through our “A” rated and Treasury Listed partners. We are also members of the National Association of Surety Bond Producers (NASBP) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
Finally, if you believe in achievement and progress, then you need a surety that will do the utmost for you. We believe that is FIA! Have your agent or broker contact our underwriters and find out about our knowledge, expertise and efficiency proven by many years of underwriting experience.
