Apply for the Surety Bond

The Nevada Collection Agency Bond is a type of surety bond, required to obtain a license as a collection agency in Nevada. While the license and surety bond are required by the Nevada Financial Institutions Division, the license application and management is performed via the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS). A collection agency license is required for any person or Nevada Collection Agency Bond company that intends to operate a collection agency in Nevada or engage in the business of collecting claims for others or solicit the right to collect or receive payment for another of any claim, or advertise or solicit either in print, by letter, in person or otherwise, the right to collect or receive payment for another of any claim, or seek to make collection or obtain payment of any claim on behalf of another (NRS 649.075). If a collection agency is located outside the state of Nevada and does not have or solicit clients that are domestically registered in Nevada, it can choose to be registered as a Foreign Collection Agency and obtain a Foreign Collection Agency License. If you are unsure which license is required, Contact Nevada Financial Institutions Division at for assistance.

The Collection Agency License authorizes the following activities in the state:

  • Consumer Loan Servicing
  • Judgment Recovery
  • Non-Private Student Loan Servicing
  • Private Student Loan Servicing
  • Reverse Mortgage Servicing
  • Third Party Debt Collection
  • Third Party First Mortgage Servicing

Surety Bond Amount and Cost

Required by the Nevada Department of Business & Industry.  For foreign collection agencies the surety bond amount is $35,000. For Nevada Collection agencies, the surety bond amount is set by the average monthly balance of Nevada client funds in the trust account.

Average Monthly Balance  Surety Bond Amount
Less than $100,000 $35,000
$100,000 or more but less than $150,000 $40,000
$150,000 or more but less than $200,000 $50,000
More than $200,000 $60,000

The Nevada Collection Agency Bond guarantees that the principle will abide by all Nevada state laws outlined in Chapter 649 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. The applicant should verify the bond amount with the obligee before applying for the bond to ensure the bond amount is correct.

The cost of the surety bond is usually between 1% and 3% of the bond amount, subject to a minimum premium and fees of $150 to$250. Surety1 will shop its many markets to procure the right price at the right terms.
