California Surety Bond Costs
“How much will my surety bond cost?” is the most common question our clients ask. Although several factors impact your exact surety bond cost, the primary factor is risk. “High risk” means there’s an increased chance that a claim will be made against a bond; these bonds typically require underwriting consideration. Low-risk bonds, on the other hand, can often be issued instantly for a set price.
$10,000 California insurance broker bonds, for example, are issued instantly at $100 for a 2-year term. Contractor license bonds, though also issued for California, require a review of the applicant’s credit history and bond amount. This bond can cost as low as $99, depending on the applicant’s credentials.

Determining Your California Bond Type

The department, office, or board requiring the bond can connect you with the bond form needed, as well as your required bond amount.
