Money Transmitters – Connecticut

 

 

 

The Connecticut Department of Banking is the state regulatory body which oversees money transmitters businesses. The filing of the license and other requirements are accomplished through NMLS, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System.

A prerequisite for licensing is that evidence of a surety bond in one of three amounts is furnished:

  • $300,000 surety bond if the average weekly amount of money transmissions in Connecticut is less than $300,000 during the most recent 12 month period ending on June 30th;
  • $500,000 surety bond if the average weekly amount of money transmissions in Connecticut is greater than $300,000 but less than $500,000 during the most recent 12 month period ending on June 30th;
  • $1 million surety bond if the average weekly amount of money transmissions in Connecticut is greater than $500,000 for the most recent 12 month period ending on June 30th .

According to NMLS, if your money transmission may potentially engage in the transmission of virtual currency, the Connecticut Commissioner will determine the amount of surety required.

 

 

 

Qualifying and the Premium

 

 

 

Qualifying for the Connecticut money transmitter bond will involve:

  • A standard surety bond application (we will pre-fill much of this with you over the phone) but will need your signature and that of a witness (non-related);
  • A review of a business and/or personal financial statement that you will provide;
  • A personal and business credit inquiry and review;

Applicants will also need to have good credit and a healthy financial statement to be approved for this money transmitter bond.

If approved, the premium will be 1 ½% of the bond amount required. This amounts to the following:

  • $300,000 surety bond will have a $4500 premium;
  • $500,000 surety bond will have a $7500 premium;
  • $1 million dollar surety will have a $15,000 annual premium.

 

 

Additional Premium Payment Options

 

 

 

The Connecticut surety bond, once issued is active for one year from the date of issuance. Thereafter, the bond – and the premium — are renewed.

If you are of the belief that your business will not require a different surety bond amount upon renewal, you may wish to consider prepayment of your existing bond.

While the call to make prepayment of the premium is entirely yours to make, prepayment lengthens the time between surety bond renewals. Prepayment also offers you a savings over year to year renewal of the bond’s premium.

Using a $500,000 surety bond as an example, the prepayment amounts are as follows:

  • If prepaid for 2 years, the premium is $13,500, which is a $1500 savings;
  • If prepaid for 3 years, the premium is $19,500, which is a $3000 savings.

 

 

 

Purpose of the Surety Bond Requirement

 

 

 

The Connecticut money transmitter surety bond is a financial guarantee which ensures your compliance with all rules, regulations, statutes and any future amendments concerning the transmission of money, travelers checks, money orders, or electronic money transmission within Connecticut.

Statutorily, the bond will cover claims for wrongful activity for 2 years after a license has been suspended, revoked, or expired.
