Oklahoma Prepaid Funeral Services Bond |
AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732
The Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) regulates and approves the licensing of those businesses which offer prepaid funeral services in the state. Businesses which offer prepaid funeral services must establish a trust account which is established according to standards acceptable to the OID.
According to current regulations, prepaid funeral services businesses are also required to obtain a surety bond as a prerequisite for licensing. The amount of the surety bond required is 15% of the amount of the trust on file with the OID.
Qualifying and the Premium
Qualifying for the Oklahoma prepaid funeral services bond is by completion of a standard surety bond application and an accompanying review by an underwriter, along with a credit score inquiry.
Our agency will only be able to have those applicants bonded who have good credit.
As part of the underwriting agreement, you may — or in some cases, may not — be asked to provide a copy of your LLC operating agreement, if applicable. You will, however, be asked if you or your business:
- have any outstanding tax liens or judgments;
- have ever failed in business or filed bankruptcy;
- have any unsatisfied collection items.
For bonds which exceed a certain threshold, you may be asked to provide a business or personal financial statement as a condition of licensing. Applicants who are approved for this bond will pay 2% of the amount of surety as premium.
Surety Bond Term
The Oklahoma prepaid funeral services provider surety bond is active for 1 year from the date of issuance. Both the surety bond and the premium are renewed annually.
