Pennsylvania Telemarketing Bond
AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732
The Commonwealth’s Attorney Generals Office requires Pennsylvania telemarketing companies to post a $50,000 surety bond if they:
- Make calls to customers from Pennsylvania, no matter where that customer is;
- Or, receive calls from customers, no matter where that customer is, while the telemarketer is in Pennsylvania.
In short, if you are a telemarketing firm in Pennsylvania, you are required to post a $50,000 surety bond.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds will help you file this bond in a timely manner.
Pennsylvania Telemarketing Bond: The Purpose
The purpose of the Pennsylvania telemarketing bond is to protect consumers, that is, the public, from acts of fraud, theft, and criminal misconduct committed by a licensed PA telemarketing company, agency, owners, or employees of that agency, in the course of their professional duties.
The bond’s existence allows those who can demonstrate financial harm to file a claim against the bond and recoup any losses, up to the bond’s amount — in total.
The telemarketing solicitor bond, therefore, is not an insurance policy for your telemarketing firm.
Rather it is a surety policy purchased by a telemarketing company on behalf of the Commonwealth and the consumer public.
And unlike an insurance policy, should a claim ever be paid on this surety bond, it is the legal responsibility of you as purchaser of the bond to reimburse the surety for all costs involved in settling the claim.
Pennsylvania Telemarketing Bond: The Premium Amount And Duration
The premium, or the price you will pay for the issuance of the Pennsylvania telemarketer bond will be a small fraction of the bond’s $50,000.
It is possible that the bond’s premium will be as little as 2%.
The price you will pay, however, will be determined by:
- A standard application (our agency can accept an application from you on the phone. We encourage it);
- And, a credit check.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds will work to provide you the best surety bond pricing.
Once issued, your telemarketing bond renews annually and must be kept current to remain in good standing with the Commonwealth’s Attorney General Office.
