Why do I need this bond?

Massachusetts collection agency bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (collection agencies) account all funds collected to the person, partnership, association or corporation firm to which the funds are due. Specifically, these bonds ensure that principals comply with all requirements of sections 24 to 28 of Chapter 93 of the General Laws.

If the principal fails to comply with these terms, the bond covers any financial losses that occur as a result of the principal’s actions up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Collection agency bonds in Massachusetts remain in full force and virtue as long as the principal remains in compliance with the terms of the surety bond contract.

These bonds must be acknowledged by a notary public.
