It’s important to understand that the $75,000 amount is not the sum required to pay in order to get the surety bond. It only refers to the maximum penal sum of the bond, i.e the maximum compensation a claimant can get if their claim is proven.
To get your surety bond you will have to pay a bond premium annually. There are several factors which will determine your premium. Without a doubt the most important among them is your personal credit score.
Applicants with a FICO score of 650 or above usually pay between 0.75% and 2.5%, while applicants with bad credit can expect premiums in the range of 2.5% to 10%. This means, a $75,000 surety bond will cost a good credit applicant somewhere between $562 and $1,875. For a bad credit applicant the cost will be in the range between $1,875 and $7,500.
Here is a breakdown of what your premiums are likely to be based on your credit score.
|Surety Bond Cost by Credit Score|
|Surety Bond Amount||Above 700||Between 650-699||Between 600-649||Below 599|
If your credit score is poor, you can include additional information in your application which can positively affect your surety bond premium. For more information on bonding costs, as well as cost-saving tips, be sure to check out our How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost? guide.
Getting a $75,000 surety bond with bad credit
Applicants with bad credit have a hard time getting bonded, because a poor credit history (or no credit history) is associated with more risk for bond underwriters. However, obtaining a surety bond is still possible, albeit at a slightly higher premium.
Bryant Surety Bonds offers a bad credit surety bonds program, which can help you get bonded at a rate of 2.5% to 10%.
