BOND CLAIM INFORMATION
Federal law requires sureties to publicly advertise for receipt of claims for a period of 60 days following publication by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ("FMCSA") of cancellation of a bond per the terms of 49 U.S.C. Sect. 13906.
For claims to be considered under a BMC-84 bond, a bond claim notice must be received by Philadelphia Indemnity Insurance Company within 60 days following the date of FMCSA's publication of the notice of bond cancellation.
