North Carolina Collection Agency Bond Overview

The collection agency bond is a surety bond that guarantees a collection agency’s compliance with regulations pertaining to their license in North Carolina. The bond’s function is to make sure that funds collected by an agency are collected in a proper manner and rightfully distributed to their clients. It protects the state and the public from collection agencies that misuse collected funds or make use of threats in order to collect debts.

Though collection agencies are viewed by some as a higher risk line of business, Bryant Surety Bonds can offer excellent standard market rates. We also have a few specialty programs that allow us to fit many of our higher risk applicants into middle markets rates. In fact, many of our applicants will receive free instant approvals when they apply through our online application. Apply now and let’s get started!

North Carolina Collection Agency Bond Cost

A collection agency bond’s cost is a fraction of the total bond amount. What percentage or rate you will be offered by a surety depends on a number of financial factors, with personal credit score being the most important.

This percentage, at standard market rates, is usually between 0.75%-2.5% of the total bond amount for applicants who have a high credit score.

Your bond’s cost is also determined by your choice of surety. Different companies will offer you different rates. Bryant Surety Bonds’ exclusive advantage is the fact that we work only with A-rated and T-listed surety bond companies - the best companies in the country. These give us access to exclusive rates, which are often unmatched by anyone else. What’s more, these companies are the most secure backers of a surety bond you could want!
