Maine --- The way life should be...
Maine’s Department of Professional & Financial Regulation, Consumer Credit Protection department oversees debt management providers.
A prerequisite for licensing is that debt management services providers obtain a $50,000 surety bond. Meeting this surety bond requirement takes just a few minutes with our agency.
You are automatically approved for the $50,000 Maine debt management service provider bond. There is no underwriter review nor a credit inquiry associated with obtaining your surety bond.
When you call us, we’ll ask you the basics --- the name which should appear on your bond and your contact information (i.e. address, phone number, and email). We’ll also ask you the name of the county where you live, and the DBA name for your business, if this latter is applicable.
Once the annual premium of $750 is paid, our agency issues this bond to you immediately. Upon issuance, your bond, a Power of Attorney (POA) form, and our notarized signature as Surety are sent to you.
Upon receipt, you’ll sign your bond as Principal, having your signature notarized.
All of these documents are then filed to:
State of Main Office of Consumer Credit
35 State House Station
Augusta, ME 04333
At $750 premium, your debt management service provider is active for one year. Thereafter, your surety bond will renew.
The option exists to prepay your bond up to 3 years. Doing so saves you over annual renewals of the premium.
The premium prepayment option and savings are as follows:
This bond is a financial guarantee of your compliance with all rules and regulations as detailed in the Maine Debt Management Services Act, as amended.
