Most brokers require that you have a margin account to trade options as opposed to a cash account. I believe that is "broker speak" indicating that they have reviewed your credit rating and decided that you will make good if one of your stocks is called away.

If you fail to surrender the stock, your broker has to make up the missing security and then tries to collect the charges from you.
