Our surety agency explains below what a collection agency is by definition, and how to get your surety bond through our company.

Collection Agencies in Arizona




Collection agencies operating in Arizona come under the authority of the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions.

The agency’s address is:

DFI (Department of Financial Institutions)

100 N. 15th Avenue, Ste. 261

Phoenix, AZ 85007

The state of Arizona defines a collection agency as a business of whatever type (corporation, LLC, sole proprietorship) which solicits and/or collects funds for alleged monies owed or asserted to be owed to a third party.



Becoming Licensed as a Collection Agency in Arizona



Applicants who wish to be licensed as a collection agency will need to complete all of the following.  The processing times will be contingent on the completeness and the accuracy of the information provided.


  • Applicants will need to file a collection agency license application
  • Applicants for an Arizona collection agency license will need to pay a non-refundable application fee of $1,500 and an additional $500 application fee for each location where the collection agency maintains an office;
  • Applicants for a collection agency will need to declare their citizenship status ;
  • Applicants will need to also provide a personal statement of their finances and a company financial statement
  • Applicants who have been convicted of any felony or crime which impinges on fiduciary trust may be denied an Arizona collection agency license


Renewal Collection Agency Licenses



Licenses, once issued, are for a period of 1 year.  The license year runs from January 1st through December 31st.

Renewal fees are $600, and an additional $200 per each additional collection agency location if that location is in Arizona.



Arizona Collection Agency Surety Bonds



The Department of Financial Institutions requires that surety bond be kept on file for Arizona collection agencies.

The amount of the bond required will be determined by the dollar value of the amount of the business completed in Arizona.



Arizona Collection Agency Surety Bond Amounts



The DFI requires a minimum bond amount of $10,000, up to a maximum amount of $35,000.

Bond amounts required are determined as follows based on income from the previous year (and so a new bond may sometimes be required):

Income of the company for the prior year

Up to $250,0000                                             $10,000 bond is required

$250,001 to $500,000                                     $15,000 bond is required

$500,000 to $750,000                                     $25,000 bond is required

$750,001 and above                                       $35,000 bond is required



Cost of the Arizona Collection Agency Bond



Applicants for the Arizona collection agency bond will only pay a pay small percentage of the amounts mentioned above.

The premium for these surety bond will be determined, mainly, by the two following criteria:

The size of the bond you are required to purchase;


Your credit report and score.



Who the Arizona Collection Agency bond Protects



The Arizona collection bond is not a business or liability insurance policy for and on behalf of a collection agency and must never be thought of as such.

The bond, is, rather, a protection — a guarantee that the collection agency will comply with all state and federal laws in the performance of their duties as a collection agency.

The bond, then, protects the consumer — and the state of Arizona — from acts of malfeasance, theft, dishonesty, misrepresentation and other criminal activities that a collection agency may engage in.
