What is a Virginia Credit Repair Service Surety Bond?
Virginia Credit Repair Service Surety Bonds are required by the Virginia State Corporation Commission – Bureau of Financial Institutions for anyone who engages in the business of providing, or offering to provide, a debt management plan to consumers. A debt management plan is defined as a program in which the consumer gives control of his funds to an agency for distribution to the consumer’s creditors. This bond has an amount of no less than $25,000 and no more than $350,000. The bond amount for a new licensee is based upon the applicant’s financial condition, capitalization, projected Virginia monthly volume of funds received, experience and other factors deemed pertinent by the commission. Please contact the Bureau of Financial Institutions for your specific bond amount.
