Nebraska Collection Agency Bond

How much does a debt collection agency bond cost in Nebraska?

The Nebraska Secretary of State requires collection agencies to post a surety bond. Bond amounts vary depending on the number of solicitors employed by the agency.

Premiums for the $15,000 bond are subject to underwriting. This means the surety bond cost is based on a review of the applicant’s personal credit report. Applicants with strong financial credentials qualify for low rates that start at 1%.

SuretyBonds.com can issue these bonds for less than $10,000 without a credit check. Call us now at 1 (800) 308-4358, or contact us online to get your Nebraska collection agency bond.

Why do I need this bond?

Nebraska collection agency bonds protect customers and the state from fraudulent and otherwise unlawful collections agencies. By posting this bond, the principal (collection agency) agrees to abide by all rules, laws and regulations stated in the Nebraska Revised Statutes, such as reporting or paying all net proceeds and due monies to clients within 45 days of the end of the month. Prohibited acts under this bond include, but are not limited to:

  • acting fraudulently or embezzling money
  • acting without a legal license
  • changing establishment of business without notifying the Secretary of State
  • not releasing necessary financial statements to the Board as deemed necessary

If these laws or any others stated in the Statutes are broken, a claim can be made against the bond to cover damages.

What’s the fine print?

If the Secretary of State deems it necessary, the bond amount can be set higher than $15,000, but the bond amount cannot exceed $100,000. This bond form expires on December 31st.
