Telemarketing Bond Overview

A telemarketing bond is a type of license and permit bond which is required in most states for telemarketing companies that operate there. Its purpose is to protect the public from telemarketing fraud, abuse, and other violations of state regulations. The telemarketing bond guarantees that bonded telemarketers and companies will comply with state regulations and only engage in honest and legitimate telemarketing practices.

If a telemarketer or company are found to have violated regulations by, for example, calling people who are on the National “Do Not Call Registry,” then a claim can be made against their bond and claimants are compensated. Since telemarketing regulations are usually quite lengthy and complicated, these bonds can also offer protection in cases when telemarketers break regulations due to oversight rather than ill will.

Telemarketing bonds are necessary for every state in which a telemarketer is calling, if such regulations are in place in those particular states. In other words, you will need 5 telemarketing bonds if you intend to solicit in, say, Texas, Utah, New York, California, and Arizona. They are required upon getting licensed as a telemarketer in that state.

Bryant Surety Bonds is able to offer both standard market rates on telemarketing bonds as well as rates for applicants with poor credit. Rates on telemarketing bonds may differ in comparison to those of other commercial bonds, due to the different types of telemarketers or markets that they target. Regardless, we are able to underwrite all types of telemarketing bonds in all states which requires those bonds.

Telemarketing Bond Cost

The cost of a telemarketing bond depends on the amount of the bond. For example, telemarketing bonds’ amounts in Arizona and California are $100,000, while in in Florida and Ohio they are $50,000, $25,000 in New York, and $10,000 in Texas.

The cost of your telemarketing bond is a percentage of the amount of your bond. This percentage, or premium, is usually determined by sureties on the basis of your personal credit score as the most important factor. If you don’t know the amount of a bond for a particular state, it is always best to contact the relevant authorities in that state.

Applicants who have a high credit score usually receive so-called standard market rates. These rates are often between 1%-4% of the total bond amount, though they may vary depending on the type of solicitation that you will be doing. Different types of telemarketing are more or less risky and the surety which backs your bond will also take this into account when determining your rate.

By working with Bryant Surety Bonds you are guaranteed to get some of the lowest possible rates on telemarketing bonds. This is due to the fact that we only partner with and represent A-rated and T-listed surety bond companies - the best and most reliable companies in the surety industry.
