Why do I need this bond?

Ohio money transmitter bonds ensure that principals (money transmitters) conduct services while remaining in compliance with Chapter 1315 of the Ohio Revised Code Annotated and all other laws applicable to the business of money transmission. If the principal conducts business in a dishonest manner, consumers will not be held responsible for financial damages that they did not commit themselves. Under the conditions of this bond, principals must do the following in order to remain in compliance with state regulations:

  • Have a minimum net worth of $500,000
  • Be a legally established business entity within the state
  • Allow the superintendent to make any necessary examinations
  • Conduct business in a safe and sound manner
  • Not have any suspended payments

If the principal violates any provisions of the bond, the surety will cover all damages up to the penal sum of the bond. The principal must then reimburse the surety in a timely manner.
