Our agency will not be able to assist you in determining the amount your business requires; we can only provide you with the state’s guidelines.
Obtaining your Vermont service contract provider bond involves completing a surety bond application. The application can in many cases be taken from you over the phone. If required, we can sometimes even allow you to provide an electronic signature.
Once your application is submitted, it is reviewed by an underwriter. This review includes a credit check inquiry. Good credit will be required for approval.
The standard rate for this bond is 2% of the amount required: a $25,000 will have a $500 premium; a $100,000 bond will have a $2000 premium.
Once your bond has been approved and the premium paid, our agency issues it to you along with a Power of Attorney form.
