Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does a Surety Bond Cost in Ohio?

How much your Ohio surety bond costs depends on the type of bond you need to obtain, as well as your own financial standing and records. When determining your premium, sureties will assess your application on the basis of these factors.

Sureties use the amount of your surety bond as the basis for their calculation of its cost. Every type of Ohio surety bond has a different amount. The amount of a surety bond is the amount of its backing, which can be extended to obligees. Bond cost, or premium rate, is a percentage of this total amount.

Sureties determine how high or low this percentage is by looking at your personal credit score. Applicants whose credit score is high typically receive a rate between 1%-4% of the total amount of their bond. In this way, the type of bond and one’s finances are the basis for the bond’s cost.

When applying for an Ohio surety bond, you can sometimes also present personal and business financials, if these are good, in order to lower your premium even further.

Our surety bond cost guide contains even more detailed information about how surety bond cost is determined, so have a look!

Ohio Bad Credit Surety Bonds Program

Applicants who have a low credit score, bankruptcies, or other demerits may find it hard to get bonded. We have devised our Bad Credit Surety Bonds program with the idea of serving those with distressed credit who may have been turned down elsewhere.

In order to accommodate the higher risk involved, rates under this program are somewhat higher, between 5%-15%, than standard market rates. Regardless of the program and rate you get, you can be sure that we will find the lowest and best rate for your Ohio surety bond through our network of partner companies.

Furthermore, if you improve your credit score over time and your overall financial standing, you can also get better rates when you apply for a new bond or renew your old one.
