Getting Construction Bonds for Jobs
Contract bonds such as bid and performance bonds are needed to work on public construction projects. However, these are usually required by cities or municipalities as opposed to the state. You can learn more about what’s needed to get surety bonds for construction projects.
Getting Court Bonds
Court bonds aren’t needed as often as the bonds mentioned above, but can be required by the courts if you need to appeal a court decision, become a legal guardian of a minor or operate as a fiduciary of an estate.
What Do Connecticut Surety Bonds Cost?
Surety bonds generally cost 1-15% of the required bond amount.

Can You Get Bonded with Bad Credit?
