Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost in Illinois?

How much your Illinois surety bond will cost depends on what type of bond you need to obtain. Most bonds have different bond amounts and it is the bond amount along with your financial standing that are taken into account when determining the rate of your bond.

For example, most license and permit bonds have their bonding amounts determined by each state government individually, though some license bonds have the same amounts across all states. Illinois contract bonds’ amounts are also dependent on the particular case that they are required for.

The relation between your Illinois surety bond’s amount and its cost is the following: the cost of your bond is a percentage of the total amount of the bond. This percentage or premium is determined by sureties when they assess your application.

In determining your rate, they take into account personal credit score as one of the most important factors. Applicants who have a high credit score are usually offered so-called standard market rates on their surety bond, which range between 1%-4% of the full amount of the bond.

Businesses and individuals who are able to provide further proof of financial stability, such as good personal or business financial statements, are sure to have their rate lowered accordingly.

To find out what other factors influence your bond’s cost, have a look at our extensive surety bond cost page!
