The Nebraska Collection Agency Bond is a type of surety bond required by the Nebraska Collection Agency Licensing Board to obtain a collection agency license in the state. While the bond is a requirement of the state, the licensing is managed by the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) and the surety bond will be filed electronically by Surety1.com with the NMLS
A collection agency license is required of:
- All persons, firms, corporations, and associations directly or indirectly engaged in soliciting, from more than one person, firm, corporation, or association, claims of any kind owed or due or asserted to be owed or due such solicited person, firm, corporation, or association, and all persons, firms, corporations, and associations directly or indirectly engaged in asserting, enforcing, or prosecuting such claims.
- Any person, firm, corporation, or association which, in attempting to collect or in collecting his, her, or its own accounts or claims, uses a fictitious name or any name other than his, her, or its own name which would indicate to the debtor that a third person is collecting or attempting to collect such account or claim.
- Any person, firm, corporation, or association which attempts to or does give away or sell to any person, firm, corporation, or association, other than one licensed under the act, any system or series of letters or forms for use in the collection of accounts or claims which assert or indicate, directly or indirectly, that the claim or account is being asserted or collected by any other person, firm, corporation, or association other than the creditor or owner of the claim or demand.
Only collection agencies located in the state of Nebraska are required to obtain a license. Per Nebraska Statutes 45-601
“Nothing in the act shall be construed to prohibit a person, firm, corporation, or association regulated as a collection agency in another state and residing in another state from communicating with a debtor in this state.”
The license authorizes Third party debt collection and directly or indirectly collecting or receiving payment for others of any delinquent account, bill, claim or
other indebtedness (not including mortgage indebtedness).
