Licensing of California Communications Applicants




The California Public Utilities Commission is the state regulatory body authorized to license and regulate telephone corporations.

A condition of licensing is that a surety bond be furnished.

The standard minimum surety bond amount is $25,000; however, the bond amount is 10% of the intrastate (that is, within California) that your business reports on the Commissioner’s User Fee Statement for the prior calendar year, OR $25,000, whichever amount is GREATER.




Qualifying and the Premium




You are automatically approved for the $25,000 California telephone corporation surety bond; and you are automatically approved for any surety bond requirement amount up to $50,000. This is because there is no credit check nor underwriter review for these amounts.

A signed application will be required of you.

The premium for the $25,000 surety bond amount is $250 annually; and for other amounts 1% of the bond amount as well.

Amounts greater than $50,000 will also require a completed and signed application, along with the additional requirement of review by an underwriter. A credit inquiry is part of the underwriting process.

Approval for these larger amounts is determined by satisfactory credit. The premium, upon approval, is at the same rate of 1% of your surety bond amount.

Once your surety bond is approved and the premium received, our agency issues your bond to you immediately.

Included with your original surety bond will be a notarized document from us as Surety and a copy of your Power of Attorney form.

Upon receipt, you’ll sign your original surety bond as Principal and file all documents received to:
