Payment Bonds

Surety Bonds for Payment Bonds

What is a Payment Bond?

Payment bonds are required on construction projects along with performance bonds, but they serve a different purposes. Payment bonds are a guarantee that the contractor will pay all workers, material suppliers, and contractors under the contract.Payment and performance bonds are often confused as the same kind of bond.

In the event you require both a performance and payment bond, the premium stays the same. The cost does vary widely from company-to-company based on a number of factors; such as credit history, previous claims filed and length in business. Cost guidelines are generally at a 3% rate for all bonds less than $250,000. Companies with poor credit history are subject to paying higher rates.

The surety company examines the following: applicant’s character, history of contract performances, necessary equipment, and financial strength, history of paying subcontractors and suppliers on time, bank relationships and an established line of credit.

What is the cost of a Payment Bond?
The cost of a performance bond usually is less than 1% of the contract price; however, if the contract is under $1 million, the premium may run between 1% and 2%. Bonds may be more costly, depending upon the credit-worthiness of the contractor.

What if I have bad credit?
Excellent personal credit score and strong financial history will permit you to achieve a lower cost. New businesses may need to prove their business stability and pay an increased premium until they have a proven track record.
