When Do I Need a Surety Bond In Montana?
Surety bonds safeguard the interests of the state of Montana and the general public by providing protection against fraudulent activities committed by individuals and companies.
The three main types of surety bonds are license and permit bonds, construction bonds, and court bonds.
Starting a business in Montana often requires that you post a license and permit bond, so that you can obtain your license and guarantee that you follow all relevant rules governing your field.
In case you are a construction contractor who wants to participate in public or private construction projects, you might be required to get construction bonds like performance bond, payment bond or bid bond.
You may need to obtain court bonds in certain situations, when required by a Montana court.

How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost?
The surety bond amount is the maximum penal sum that can be paid to affected parties on proven claims. Your surety bond cost is, in fact, only a percentage of that amount, which is commonly referred to as the bond premium. One of the most important factors that are considered in formulating your premium is your personal credit score.
The typical percentages for applicants with high credit are between 1%-4% - so-called standard market rates. Rates for applicants with lower scores range between 5% and 15% due to the higher risk that sureties assume when bonding such applicants.
