Debt Collectors – Massachusetts
Collection agencies operating in the Commonwealth are regulated by the state’s Division of Banks.
Licensing for new debt collector applicants is found under the mass.gov website.
As part of the licensing process, debt collection agencies are required to furnish the appropriate surety bond.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds offers the debt collector surety bond for both first time and existing collection agencies which need to renew their surety bond.
Massachusetts Collection Agency Bond: Amount Required and the Premium
The Massachusetts collection agency bond is a $25,000 surety bond required by Commonwealth state regulations.
Pricing for the collection agency bond will be determined by the following:
- Information provided on your surety bond application. (An application may be accepted directly over the phone with our surety agent);
- The credit score of your business or your personal score.
Applicants with very good credit may pay as little as 1% for this surety bond; however, the amount that you will pay will be determined by the above variables, and so may vary considerably.
The Bond’s Duration
The Massachusetts debt collection agency bond is typically active for one year from the date of issuance.
Options exist in some cases to prepay for the collection agency bond for either 2 or 3 years. Though the premium in such instances would obviously be more, it does offer a savings over renewing annually.
