What Is A Payment Bond?
A payment bond ensures that a contractors material suppliers and subs are paid according to contract and is very commonly used on public projects where mechanics liens are not allowed. A payment bond is a type of contract bond that is often packaged with a performance bond by many sureties. The need for a performance bond and payment bond often arises out of a contractor successfully winning a public job opportunity and posting a bid bond in the process.
How Much Does A Payment Bond Cost?
Payment bond costs can vary but are often around 3% of the contract amount assuming the applicant has sound financials. For example, if your bond requirement is for $200,000, then a 3% premium would translate to a $6,000 bond cost.
