Questions about Collection Agency Bonds in Alabama
How much does a Collection Agency Bond cost?
Annual premium amounts are determined based on owner personal credit. Owners with stellar credit may be eligible for standard market rates, which range from 1% to 3% of the bond amount.
If the owner has a low credit score, or past due items on their credit report, annual premium typically ranges between 5% to 15% of the bond amount. For most states, our high risk rate does not exceed 7.5%.
