IMPORTANT:
All applicants for a Surety Bail Bond license must submit to a background investigation.
Once the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney receives a copy of the license application, they
will notify you in writing with instructions for submitting your fingerprints to the
Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection. The applicant is responsible for
all fees incurred. Criminal history results will be returned to the Insurance Department for
review. If your application is approved, a license will be issued and a photo I.D. mailed to
your resident address. Due to the large volume of background requests, results can take up to
four months to complete.
Once you receive your photo I.D. license, you must obtain an appointment from an
insurance company authorized to write surety bail bonds in Connecticut. A separate
appointment is required from each insurance company you wish to represent. The license
approval letter contains detailed information regarding the appointment process.
Applicants with a disqualifying offense as enumerated under 38a-660 will NOT be granted a
surety bail bond license.
Bail bond licensees must adhere to several requirements under current statute. In order to
familiarize yourself with the law and your obligations under such, please review the
information contained in each link on the CID Bail Bonds Regulation page.
All licensed bondsmen must pay an annual assessment of $450.00, as well as complete a
monthly certification of the number of bonds executed. Failure to do so will result in
administrative sanctions.

Connecticut Insurance Department
Agency Privacy Requirements for Noncriminal Justice Applicants
Authorized governmental and non-governmental agencies/officials that conduct a national
fingerprint-based criminal history record check on an applicant for a noncriminal justice purpose
(such as a job or license, immigration or naturalization matter, security clearance, or adoption)
are obligated to ensure the applicant is provided certain notice and other information and that the
results of the check are handled in a manner that protects the applicant's privacy.
I.
Officials must provide to the applicant written notice that his/her fingerprints will be
used to check the criminal history records of the FBI.
II.
Officials using the FBI criminal history record (if one exists) to make a determination of
the applicant's suitability for the job, license, or other benefit must provide the applicant
the opportunity to complete or challenge the accuracy of the information in the record.
III.
Officials must advise the applicant that procedures for obtaining a change, correction, or
updating of an FBI criminal history record are set forth at Title 28, Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR), Section 16.34.
IV.
Officials should not deny the job, license, or other benefit based on information in the
criminal history record until the applicant has been afforded a reasonable time to correct
or complete the record or has declined to do so.
V.
Officials must use the criminal history record solely for the purpose requested and cannot
disseminate the record outside the receiving department, related agency, or other
authorized entity.
The FBI has no objection to officials providing a copy of the applicant's FBI criminal history
record to the applicant for review and possible challenge when the record was obtained based on
positive fingerprint identification. If agency policy permits, this courtesy will save the applicant
the time and additional FBI fee to obtain his/her record directly from the FBI by following the
procedures found at 28 CFR 16.30 through 16.34. It will also allow the officials to make a more
timely determination of the applicant's suitability.
Each agency should establish and document the process/procedures it utilizes for how/when it
gives the applicant notice, what constitutes "a reasonable time" for the applicant to correct or
complete the record, and any applicant appeal process that is afforded the applicant. Such
documentation will assist State and/or FBI auditors during periodic compliance reviews on use
of criminal history records for noncriminal justice purposes.
