The cost of your $50,000 surety bond depends mostly on your personal credit score. Applicants with good credit usually pay premiums between 0.75% and 2.5%, which means between $375 and $1,250 per year. Applicants with bad credit, on the other hand, pay premiums in the range of 2.5% to 10%, or between $1,250 and $5,000.
As you see the $50,000 amount is not the sum required from the holder of the surety bond. Instead, this is the amount up to which a claimant on the bond can get compensated. The table below provides more estimates based on the credit score bracket you are in.
|Surety Bond Cost by Credit Score|
|Surety Bond Amount||Above 700||Between 650-699||Between 600-649||Below 599|
If you have bad credit, you might want to consider submitting additional information along with your application. Industry experience, strong financials or liquid assets can all contribute to a lower premium despite a less-than-stellar credit score.
