A collection agency bond is like other surety bonds in that it guarantees compliance with regulations pertaining to state licensure in which the collection agency operates. The main function of the bond is to ensure that the funds collected by an agency are collected in a correct manner and then legally distributed to their clients. Collection bonds protect the state and the public from collection agencies that misuse collected funds.
Since each state creates its own licensing rules, the guarantee of each bond varies from state to state. In general, the collection agency bond guarantees that the collection agency will adhere to the rules and regulations of their license with their state.
The bonding amount for collection agencies is usually set at the state level. The premium for the bond is a fraction of the total bond amount, dependent on your businesses financials and credit score.
