January 1, 2021, marked the 10th full year of successful surety operations at FCCI. The idea to get into the surety market was born by our agents looking for their own dedicated surety market to complement FCCI’s already strong construction market presence. Over the past 10 years, we have grown to be a top 45 surety provider in the country and a very strong addition to FCCI’s portfolio of products and services.
As we cut the anniversary cake, we extend a very special thank you to our valued agency partners and our wonderful surety teammates for your dedication and support!
We offer a 24/7 online bond system resource so agents can quote, issue and manage FCCI commercial surety bonds anytime. ExpressWrite SuretySM decreases processing time and gets you answers quickly.

When you need a contract bond fast, think FCCI. FCCI’s Fast Lane Bonds can be written up to $500,000 single/aggregate, and the streamlined application process means efficient results.
