Overview of Bonding Requirements in Nebraska

Compared to most other states, there are relatively few surety bond requirements in Nebraska. Surety bonds can be required from businesses when they apply for a license, from construction contractors working on some public projects, or from individuals who appeal a court decision.

A typical surety bond agreement involves three sides:

  • An obligee (requires the bond)
  • A principal (posts the bond)
  • A surety (backs the bond agreement)

The role of the surety is to make guarantees to the obligee that the principal will act in accordance with the bond agreement, or face legal consequences. A third party which suffers loss from the principal can file a claim and seek recourse.

You can apply for your bond using the bond below. Even if you don’t find your on our list, that doesn’t mean we can’t get you bonded. Simply call us at (877)-514-5146.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of bonds in Nebraska?

Based on their purpose, there are three main categories of surety bonds:

  • License bonds is the largest category. As their name suggests, license bonds are required from businesses wishing to get licensed in Nebraska. Such businesses include collection agencies, lotteries, investment advisors, auto dealers and others.
  • Contract bonds are required when a company wants to bid and perform work on a large public project. Private project owners, however, can also require surety bonds in certain cases.
  • Court bonds are required from court decision appellants or individuals appointed as fiduciaries.

What’s the cost of Nebraska surety bonds?

How much you surety bond will cost depends on a variety of factors. To start, you need to know to know your bond’s total amount first. A bond’s total amount, or penal sum, determines the maximum compensation the bond’s principal may owe in case of claim.

The total amount for license bonds is determined by a state agency based on an estimate of an expected claim rate for the whole industry. Some bonds, however, are determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the applicant’s finances, net worth, and other information.

For contract bonds, the total amount is usually a certain percentage of the contract’s cost. For large public projects, it can even be 100% of the contract price.

Bond applicants pay for these bonds in premiums, which, in most cases, are annual or biannual for license bonds and typically range between 1% and 4% if the applicant has good credit. For contract bonds a number of factors may be considered: financial strength, the type of work required, credit score, the contractor’s experience and others.

Information for applicants with bad credit

99% of applicants for license bonds will have no problem getting bonded, despite a low credit score. Some exceptions are those with an open bankruptcies or late child support payments. For most bad-credit applicants, the only difference is usually a higher premium. A co-signer or collateral is usually not required.

Currently, because of the very high risk involved in construction projects, bad credit programs do not exist for contract bonds. You can find more information on our page dedicated to bad credit surety bonds.
