Qualifying and the Premium Amount
There is no credit check nor standard underwriting for the South Caroling Bingo Bond (or SC Bingo Revenue Bond as titled by the Department).
What this means is that after completion of an application, and payment of the premium, the surety bond is issued to you immediately for filing.
Premium amounts for each of these bond amounts is just 1% annually. Here is the breakdown with dollar amounts.
- A $10,000 bingo surety bond is $100;
- A $20,000 bingo surety bond is $200;
- The $50,000 surety bond is $500 a year.
Once the surety bond application is completed and the premium is paid, our agency can email you a copy of your surety bond for no additional charge.
The original surety bond will follow in the mail. It is the original bond, which you will also sign, that you will want to have filed.
Premium Prepayment Options
