Why do Indiana collection agencies need to be bonded?
Indiana collection agency bonds ensure that collection agencies will follow all rules and regulations found in the Indiana Code 25, Article 11. Some of these provisions include:
- only acting as a collection agency upon receiving a license
- paying any client within 60 days of a collection
- making certain that all money collected is deposited into a depository on a weekly basis
If a collection agency fails to adhere to these laws, the surety will cover any damages up to the full bond amount. The principal could be liable for claims against the bond and is ultimately responsible for reimbursing the surety.
The county the collection agency resides in must be listed on the bond form, as well as the NMLS number. Collection agency bonds in Indiana are continuous until canceled. The state requires surety companies to provide them with at least 60 days’ notice before canceling a bond.
