Surety Bond Rating Factors

State Based Regulatory Factors

Every state has their own regulations that surety companies nationwide must follow. The different regulations can make a difference for the same bond purchased in different states.  We are licensed in ALL 50 States and can serve your needs anywhere in the US.

Surety Bond Type Factor

Surety Bonds guarantee performance. Generally it is a contractual duty or the duty of maintaining industry and ethical standards when getting various licenses and permits. Different activities carry different risks as determined by the Surety Company and its underwriters. This is why different bonds have different rates.

Financial Credentials Factor

Except for freely issued surety bonds, the most important factor is personal credit and financial position. The larger the bond, the more information is required to get it underwritten and that’s where we come in. We help you gather together all the necessary information as painlessly as possible!

Standard and Substandard Surety Bond Ratings

The second type of surety bond rating is substandard, which requires us to use special markets to assist in providing bonds for individuals and/or businesses that have less than perfect credit. Rates are determined by the same underwriting information needed for a standard rating but the rates can range from 3-25%. We have several markets to assist our clients in this situation.
