Help - Clarification Needed

My broker wants to sell me some corporate AAA bonds.

I am very concerend about safety and preservation of income.

My broker keeps telling me "not to worry" since the corporate bonds she has available are "insured".

Can some kind person advise how does insurance works for corporate bonds in the event of a default?

Are ther any issues that I should be made aware of concerning insurance? Fees, reduced yields, etc.?
