How Do I Get Bonded?

What Is an Arizona Money Transmitter Bond?

Money transmitters who do business in Arizona have to be licensed with the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions. One of the licensing requirements is posting an Arizona money transmitter bond.

The goal of your money transmitter bond is to protect state authorities and your customers from any unlawful actions you commit as a money transmitter. If you do break the rules, the bond provides financial compensation to affected parties.

The Arizona money transmitter bond functions much like other Arizona surety bonds. It’s a contract between three parties. The principal is your Arizona money transmitting business. The state Department of Financial Institutions is the obligee that imposes the bonding as a prerequisite to issuing your Arizona money transmitter license. The third entity is the surety, which provides you with the bond and backs your business.

Questions about Money Transmitter Bonds in Arizona

Who needs an Arizona money transmitter bond?

Any business who wants to conduct money transmitting in Arizona needs to get bonded in order to obtain a state license from the Department of Financial Institutions. The bond ensures they will comply with applicable Arizona Statutes, and protects customers. Applicants have to use the official surety bond form when submitting their applications for an Arizona money transmitter license.

How much do I have to pay for an Arizona money transmitter bond?

The bond amount that Arizona money transmitters have to post is set by the licensing authority, with a minimum amount of $25,000. Before you start your licensing process, make sure to verify the requirements that apply for you.

The bond price you have to pay is not the same as your bond amount. It’s called the bond premium, and it’s usually between 1%-5% of the bond amount. This means that for a $25,000 bond you may pay as low as $250-$1,250.

Bond Cost Based on Credit Score
Bond Type Surety Bond Amount Credit Sore
Above 700 Between 650-699 Between 600-649 Below 599
Arizona Money Transmitter Bond (Minimum Amount) $25,000 $188-$375 $250-$750 $625-$1,250 $1,250-$2,500

When you apply with a surety, it needs to take a close look at your personal and business finances. It considers factors such as your personal credit score, business finances, and assets and liquidity, in order to judge how risky it is to get you bonded. Your bond price is likely to be lower if your overall financial status is solid.

How are bond claims handled for Arizona money transmitters?

Your surety bond does not protect your money transmitting company. Instead, it safeguards the interests of your customers. If you knowingly transgress from your obligations as set in the Arizona Revised Statutes, Chapter 12, you can face a bond claim.

On proven claims, you’re obligated to reimburse affected parties up to the penal sum of your bond. Your surety covers all expenses at first, but you have to repay it in full. This means that bond claims can harm your business financially, and they prevent you from getting bonded in the future.
