    It means that they are insured against a loss in the case that you fail to honor your end of the contract.

    If this isn't a commercial contract, then she is both.

    Yater, I see.
    But can't they just...not pay me? Seems easier to me.
    Anywho...I'll look into getting bonded tomorrow since I really want this account

    I can't imagine a bond for a residential account! If anything, I'd ask for payment up front FROM HER.

    It could have been a test question.

    I checked into getting bonded and they told me the only way to get bonded was if it was required by the city or state. It was not expensive $100 for a $10,000 bond.

    A performance bond is usually what city and state governments require a bidder to have. Insurance should be all that is needed when doing residential work.
