California Bond of Bail Agent

What is a California bail agent bond?

The California bail agent bond is a surety bond required by the California Department of Insurance (CDI). To operate legally in California, individual bail bond agents and bail bond companies must meet specific requirements, including obtaining a bail agent license and posting a $1,000 surety bond.

How do California bail agent bonds work?

A California bail agent bond guarantees any money received by a bail agent or company is handled properly.

There are three parties involved in the California bail agent bond: the California Department of Insurance (CDI) (obligee), the bail agent (principal), and the bonding company (surety). The principal must follow the standards set by the obligee and bond agreement. If the bail agent or bail bonding company fails to do so, the State of California can file a claim against the bond to seek compensation for losses.

What else should I know about California bail agent bonds?

Purchasing a surety bond is required to be licensed as a bail agent in California. Before purchasing your bond, you must meet California's licensing requirements. Once you have met the requirements, you must file the required documents with the California Department of Insurance.
