The New Jersey Collection Agency Bond is a type of surety bond required to act as a collection agency in the state. The $5,000 bond is required by the New Jersey Division of Revenue and Enterprise New Jersey Collection Services. The process is a little confusing in the state as there is no Collection Agency License, however the surety bond must be on file. Anyone who is operating a collection agency or is in the business of collecting or receiving payment for others of any account, bill, or other indebtedness must annually file a Collection Agency Bond Application (click for link to the application). Not to be confused with the surety bond application provided by will provide the actual surety bond, with the Power of Attorney and required financial statement of the surety company. 

“New Jersey statutes (N.J.S.A. 45:18 et seq.) dictates that no person can operate a collection
agency, collection bureau or collection office or engage in the business of collecting or receiving
payment for others of any account, bill, or other indebtedness without having a sufficient bond
on file with the Secretary of State. “

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. The cost of the bond is usually $150.00.
