Service plan qualifying bond cost
The Kansas Commissioner of Insurance mandates that operators of prepaid service plans in the state execute a surety bond. The required bond amount varies according to the degree of business the prepaid service plan conducts with its members. If the prepaid service plan has no history of transacting business in Kansas, the initial bond requirement is $50,000. As the service plan’s annual membership fees increase, so does the required bond amount.
Surety underwriting companies might require current business financials and a personal financial statement to underwrite this bond, so having these documents handy when you contact Surety Bonds will expedite the bonding process.Because both the required amount and price of this bond can vary so much, our experts recommend submitting a bond request to find out exactly how much you’ll pay for your Kansas surety bond.

Specifically, these bonds ensure that principals will pay any fines, fees or penalties that become due if the principal fails to conduct business according to the provisions of K.S.A. 40-4201.
