Why do I need this bond?

Illinois law mandates that all remittance agents purchase and maintain a surety bond as a requirement when obtaining a license. This surety bond ensures that the bonded agent will be liable for any and all financial damages suffered by consumers as a result of the agent’s failure to comply with the rules and regulations stated in the Remittance Act. Specifically, this bond ensures that agents accept money from the public for remittance ethically and lawfully.

Our experts’ unsurpassed knowledge of the bonding process ensures that you will get the bond you need quickly, easily and accurately. Apply now!

What’s the fine print?

These bonds expire annually on December 31, so your bond premium could be prorated depending on when you buy it. Our team of surety experts works hard to get you bonded according to your specific needs. If the surety wishes to terminate this bond before the expiration date, a 30-day notice of cancellation must be given to the Office of the Secretary of State.

The bond form must be notarized and the applicant must know the county in which business will be conducted.
