Tip of the Week: Financial Guarantee Instrument Release

Will you require the release of a financial guarantee instrument? The release date of the instrument can vary based on several factors. Please see below for guidelines and requirements.

Voluntary Deletions:

  • Letter of Credit (LOC): 100 days from the effective date of the voluntary deletion
  • Cash Security Deposit (CSD): 100 days from the effective date of the voluntary deletion
  • Bond: Six months from the effective date of the voluntary deletion

Reclassification to a VTC:

  • The same schedule as voluntary deletions applies

Current Instrument is Replaced by a New Instrument:

  • LOC: Immediate release if replaced by CSD or LOC, or 100 days from the effective date of a new bond
  • CSD: Immediate release if replaced by CSD or LOC, or 100 days from the effective date of a new bond
  • Bond: Immediate release if replaced by CSD or LOC, or six months from the effective date of the new bond

ARC will not return a financial guarantee instrument until we receive a written request from the agency. The request must be signed by an Authorized Owner or Officer of the company. Requests for the return of a CSD must be notarized and signed by the person who authorized the CSD application.
