How much will my Oklahoma insurance claim processor’s bond cost?
Oklahoma third party administrator bonds are required by the Oklahoma Insurance Department and Commissioner. The bond amount is determined by the Commissioner and depends on the premiums collected or claims paid from the annual report of the previous year. Third party administrators in their first year must post a surety bond in the amount of $10,000.
These bonds are credit based bonds, which means the amount you will pay for your bond is subject to underwriting and depends on a review of your credit report. To get your free, personalized surety bond quote, call us at 1 (800) 308-4358, or contact us online.
