How is the cost of a surety bond calculated?
The cost of a surety bond is dependent upon a variety of factors, but in almost all instances it is a small percentage of the total bond amount—typically 1-10%. All surety bonds are either issued instantly at a set premium for the subject to review by an underwriter where the cost will be calculated based on things like the bond amount, the risk associated with the bond, and the risk associated with the applicant.
Unlike insurance policies that are written to take into account the losses suffered when a claim is made, underwritten surety bonds are issued to applicants who are considered to be of minimal risk. That is to say, surety companies issue bonds assuming the principal—the entity buying the bond—will not have any claims against their bond.
