Delaware Sale of Checks and Transmission of Money
Money transmitters in Delaware are licensed and regulated by the state’s Banking Department. A condition of both first time and renewal licensees is that the appropriate surety bond be obtained and furnished to the Department.
This surety bond is also referred to as a Delaware seller of checks, or seller of money orders surety bond.
The breakdown for surety bond amounts required are as follows:
- A minimum of $25,000 surety bond requirement;
- Followed by an additional $5000 surety bond requirement for each additional location beyond the first one;
- However, the surety bond amount will not exceed a $250,000 surety bond requirement regardless of the number of locations.
Qualifying and the Premium
For both first time and renewal licensees, up to and including a $50,000 surety bond requirement, our agency offers you the Delaware seller of checks or seller of money orders surety bond immediately and without a credit inquiry.
A $25,000 surety bond will cost you just $375 annually.
When you call us, our agency will verbally take the application from you over the phone. We’ll ask you very basic questions: The name, exactly as it should appear on your surety bond, along with your contact information. This includes your address, phone number and email.
After payment of the premium, the bond, along with a Power of Attorney (POA) form are issued to you immediately.
Surety Bond Requirement Greater than $50,000
For a surety bond amount greater than $50,000, a signed application along with a credit score inquiry are required. An applicant who is approved for a $250,000 surety bond will have an annual premium of just $3750.

Premium Prepayment Options
For all surety bond amounts, our agency offers you the ability to prepay your premium up to 3 years. Prepayment of the premium will save you over annual renewals, besides lengthening the time between renewals.
As an example, the $25,000 surety bond amount:
- If prepaid for 2 years, the premium is $675, a $75 savings;
- If prepaid for 3 years, the premium is $975, a $150 savings.
The greater the surety bond amount, the greater the savings.
As an example, the $250,000 surety bond amount:
- If prepaid for 2 years, the premium is $6750, a $750 savings;
- If prepaid for 3 years, the premium is $9750, a $1500 savings.
Purpose of Your Surety Bond Requirement
