Part 1. Obligor and Agent/Co-Obligor Information
31 U.S.C. section 7701(c)(1). The head of each Federal agency will require each person doing business with that agency to furnish to
that agency such person's taxpayer identification number, if any. It is the intent of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to use
such numbers for purposes of collecting and reporting information on any delinquent accounts arising out of such person's relationship
with the Government. The obligor, surety, or agent must furnish its Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) to DHS. Failure to furnish
the TIN may result in a refusal of the Public Charge Bond.
An acceptable surety company, or an entity or individual who deposits cash or cash equivalents such as certified checks, cashier's
checks, or money orders, may execute the public charge bond (“public charge bond” or “bond”) as the surety. The surety is the
obligor; the bonded alien is the principal; and DHS is the beneficiary of all bonds it authorizes. The obligor guarantees the
performance of the conditions of the bond. The bond's guaranty is secured by the amount of the bond. An acceptable surety company
is generally one that appears on the current Treasury Department Circular 570 as a company holding the requisite certificate of
authority to act as a surety on Federal bonds. Acceptable sureties are defined in 8 CFR 103.6(b).
