Contractor bond cost

General and specialty subcontractors and contractors who conduct business within the State of Hawaii are required to post a surety bond. Bond amounts vary from applicant to applicant. Bond premiums are subject to underwriting. This means premiums are based on your personal credit report.

Why this bond

By posting a bond the principal guarantees to carry out business in full compliance with the provisions of Chapter 444 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes. This includes faithfully and promptly accounting for and paying all wages to employees. Specifically, this bond offers indemnity to protect all persons financially harmed by wrongful acts of the principal.
