About Iowa Bond Claim Form | Free Template Download

This is an Iowa Payment Bond Claim form. This form can be filled out with a PDF editor or by hand after printing.

An Iowa Bond Claim form is used when a subcontractor or supplier is unpaid on a public project in Iowa and would like to file a claim against the project’s payment bond. This notice must be sent by anyone without a direct contract with the prime contractor to the officer, board, or commission authorized to let contracts for the project. However, it may be a good idea to send a copy to the prime contractor and the surety as well.

The claim should be sent to the public entity by certified mail. For full protection, the claim must be filed within 30 days after the completion and acceptance of the project. It may be sent later, but the amount recoverable may be reduced to the unpaid balance due to the prime contractor.
