Contract Payment Bonds


Payment Bond Information

A payment bond is a type of contract surety bond posted by contractors to ensure that subcontractors and suppliers involved in the project are paid according to agreed upon terms. Payment bonds are required on most federally funded contracts and are usually set at an amount equaling the full contract value. These bonds usually accompany performance bonds.

How much does a Payment Bond Cost?

Payment Bond prices vary based on the bond amount and the applicant. Most contact bonds are priced at 2-3% of the bond amount. Request a free, no-obligation quote and one of our bond specialists will look at your specific circumstances.

The party requiring the bond should have specified the bond amount. If not, the bond amount is likely the same as the total contract amount. If you are requesting a bid bond, the bond amount is often only 5-10% of the contract value.
