Surety bond costs can vary widely from bond to bond. Some bonds are as inexpensive as the 4-year Kentucky Notary Bond which you can get for $30. That is literally 2 cents a day spread over the lifetime of the surety bond.


The price for others can add up to a lot more than that. In fact, many small business owners find themselves with a surety bond costs that exceed their current cash on hand.


Since most surety bonds must be paid upfront, this is when the next logical questions come: “Can I make payments?” or “Do you offer surety bond financing?” or "Can I be put on a payment plan?"

Do You Offer Surety Bond Payment Plans?


The quick and easy answer is YES. We do offer surety bond premium financing.


We get it. You are small business owner and cash is king and it is not always good to have all your cash tied up in your surety bond.

However, you need a bond when the government says you need a bond to move forward with licensure or some other contractual agreement. If this is your situation, surety bond financing can be a great option.


Can I Finance Any Surety Bond?


The short answer is no.


Surety bond carriers often have a threshold for financing that hovers around $1,000.

This means if your bond premium is more than $1,000, you might be able to get financing. If your bond premium is less than $1,000, you most likely will not be able to get financing. 

It is also important to note that premium financing is only available on surety bonds that are able to be cancelled. This protects the surety bond company in the event that you fail to make your payments on the premium installment.


Setting up a Surety Bond Payment Plan


Surety bond financing breaks your premium payments up into smaller, more manageable payments you can spread out over time.

There are essentially three parties in the financing agreement:

  • you (the person who needs bond financing)
  • the finance company and
  • the surety bond company

If you fail to pay one of your installments, the financing company is able to contact the surety bond company immediately to cancel the bond. This ensures that bond coverage is only in effect when payment has been made which protects all parties involved.
