Which bond amount should I choose?
The most important thing to consider when deciding how much coverage you need is where your company will be providing service. Because business service bonds protect your clients from theft committed by one of your employees, some business types require greater bond amounts than others. A small business, for example, will have fewer employees than a large company. A small business could still choose to purchase a higher level of coverage from the surety company.
For your convenience, here is a quick chart of suggested bond amounts, based on where businesses commonly work.
|Type of Business||Bond Amount|
|Residential - Small||$10,000+|
|Residential - Medium||$25,000+|
|Residential - Large||$25,000+|
|Commercial - Small||$25,000+|
|Commercial - Large||$50,000+|
