How To Handle Bonds in Bad Credit Situations
Bad Credit Bond situations come in many forms and we see a lot of accounts that have bad credit or other challenges. Obtaining a bad credit bond can be challenging for contractors and insurance agents that do not have a relationship with a surety that handles bonds in a bad credit situation. CCI Surety handles bad credit bond accounts on a daily basis and our underwriters are trained to look beyond the bad credit score to look for opportunities to underwrite the bond. It may take more work but if your client has other strong attributes or experience then our underwriters will do their best to turn the bad credit bond situation into an opportunity. There are many ways to get started if you are facing a bad credit bond need. You can call CCI Surety directly or use the ‘connect with an underwriter’ area on this page. It is also possible to get started with the applications below:
