Southwest Surety Bond

Southwest Surety Bond Office – Phoenix, AZ

CCI Surety opened their Phoenix location to serve as the Southwest Surety Bond Office in early 2016. This office serves insurance agents in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah when contract surety bond needs arise. In particular, CCI Surety handles non-standard surety bond needs. This can include writing surety bonds for clients with low credit scores, limited financial capacity or sophistication, or other difficult situations.

Surety Bond Authority

Surety bond underwriters in the Southwest Office focus on Bid Bonds, Performance and Payment Bonds, Reclamation, and other contract surety bond needs in the $250,000 – $3,000,000 with their own in-house authority. Agents can work directly with the underwriter making the decision on their clients need. CCI Surety’s Small Contractor Program provides support from the home office for small contract surety bond needs under $250,000.

Surety Bond Accounts With Low Credit Score

CCI Surety has bond programs that can potentially work for contractors even if they have low credit score. Underwriters do review credit reports carefully, but there is not an automatic cut-off for contractors with a low credit score. If you have a surety bond account that has been declined by a quick program or standard market because of low credit score, please contact us to review the account.
