For our current customers who have an active bond issued by Bluewater Surety Insurance Agency
(formerly California Notary Bond and Insurance Services):
Merchants Bonding Company will send you a renewal billing approximately 60 days before your current bond is set to expire.
In order to keep your bond in effect and retain the same bond number, please pay either by check (directly to Merchants Bonding Co.) or
by credit/debit card using the renewal link and code provided on your invoice by the due date on the invoice.
Upon receipt of payment, a continuation certificate will be mailed to you.
If you do not receive a renewal invoice at least 30 days in advance,
please contact Merchants Bonding Company at 800-678-8171 to request a copy.
IMPORTANT FOR CTEC RENEWAL:
Your bond number will remain the same if you renew your current bond ontime.
If your current bond has not expired and you intend to renew it upon receipt of the renewal billing,
then you can register with CTEC using your existing bond number.
If your bond expires, you will need to obtain a new bond and get a new bond number before you can register with CTEC.
