Questions about Surety Bonds in Alaska

How much does a surety bond cost in Alaska?

The answer to this question depends on a few factors. Surety bonds have different total bond amounts, which refer to the dollar amount up to which they offer protection for your customers or the state.

When the surety bond company underwrites your bond, they will ask you to pay a bond premium. This is your actual cost, and only a small fraction of the total bond amount. The bonding company will calculate the premium after they evaluate your application, looking at factors such as personal credit score, financial stability, and industry experience. For applicants with no credit issues, the premiums vary between 1% and 4% of the total bond amount.
