Universal Citation: IN Code § 29-1-19-9 (2019)
IC 29-1-19-9 Bond of guardian

Sec. 9. (a) Upon appointment, a guardian shall execute and file bond to be approved by the court in an amount not less than the estimated value of the personal estate and anticipated income of the protected person during the ensuing year. The bond shall be in the form and be conditioned as required of guardians appointed under IC 29-3-7. The court may from time to time require the guardian to file an additional bond. Any bank or trust company organized under the laws of the state, or of the United States of America, and operating a bank or trust company, which is located within Indiana, which is now acting, or which may act as a guardian under this chapter, is exempt from furnishing the bond required in this subsection to the same extent and in the same manner as a bank or trust company, when acting in a fiduciary capacity, is relieved from filing a bond under the provisions of IC 28-2-7.

(b) Where a bond is tendered by a guardian with personal sureties, there shall be at least one (1) or more surety or sureties and the guardian or sureties shall file with the court a certificate under oath which shall describe the property owned, both real and personal, and shall state that each is worth the sum named in the bond as the penalty thereof over and above all the guardian's debts and liabilities and the aggregate of other bonds on which the guardian is principal or surety and exclusive of property exempt from execution. The court may require additional security or may require a corporate surety bond, the premium thereon to be paid from the ward's estate.
