Arkansas Collection Agency BondThe Arkansas Collection Agency Bond guarantees that debt collectors will abide by all state and federal laws. The surety bond protects the public legally and financially if the collector breaks the law when dealing with the public. If the principle acts against the bond, the state has the legally ability to cancel the bond and revoke the business license.

Typically, the bond amount is determined by factors such as the number of agency employees, how much revenue is expected, and the population the agency will be serving, among others. The bond premium (the cost to you) is only a small fraction of the bond amount. Surety1 works to get you the lowest possible premium for your bond.


Surety Bond

  • Required by: Arkansas State Board of Collection Agencies
  • Minimum Bond Amount: $10,000
  • Maximum Bond Amount: $25,000
  • Valid: Continuous – Renewable

The exact bond amount is determined by how many debt collectors are employed by the agency:

  • up to 5 = $10,000
  • 6-12 = $20,000
  • 13 + = $25,000

The applicant should verify the bond amount with the obligee before applying for the bond to ensure the bond amount is correct.

This bond guarantees that the principle will abide by all Arkansas state laws and regulations.

Since this bond is continuous, it is in full force and effect until cancelled. If the bond is cancelled, the obligee must be notified at least 30 days before the cancellation date.
