Required Surety Bond Amount

In order to get your money transmitter’s business license, you’ll need a bond. The minimum amount of the Colorado Money Transmitter Bond is $250,000 for estimated three year money transmission activity of $250,000 or less. Over $250,000 in projected activity, one must provide a $1,000,000 surety bond. Additionally, The Banking Board may, following notice to the licensee and an opportunity for hearing before the Banking Board, and upon the determination that customers of the licensee are at undue risk, order the licensee to increase the bond amount up to $2,000,000.

Before applying for a bond, the obligee (Colorado Banking Board) should be contacted to make sure the bond amount the applicant will be applying for is correct. A surety bond is required so all money transmitters in Colorado will comply with Title 12, Article 52 of the Colorado Revised Statutes along with other Colorado state laws. It does not protect the licensee. A surety bond is not insurance for the licensee.
