Surety Bonds Explained

Surety Bond Basics

A surety bond serves as a promise outlining the liable parties’ accountability for debt, default, or failure. The written document is signed by three parties – the principal (payee), the obligee (payer), and the surety (bond provider).

Surety bonds are mandatory in Connecticut in several cases, especially state and federal projects. The state’s statutes require individuals and businesses to get surety bonds that will guarantee compliance with the business laws and regulations.


If the bonded party doesn’t adhere to the bond agreement, the other party can file a claim against the bond and maintain their financial security at all times.

How Much Do Connecticut Surety Bonds Cost?

The cost of obtaining surety bonds is determined using multiple financial indicators and factors, including business/personal bank statements, credit scores, asset profiles, industry, and work records. Secondly, the principal has to pay a surety bond premium, a percentage of the total penal bond amount the surety has to pay obliges if they file a claim against it.
