The cost of a fidelity bond increases with its limits

Insureon’s analysis shows that policy limits have a direct impact on the amount small businesses pay for fidelity bonds. Higher limits cost more, but also provide better coverage.

The graph below shows that the cost of a fidelity bond goes up as the policy limit increases. The median cost of a fidelity bond with a $1 million policy limit, our most popular limit, is $1,054 annually, or less than $90 per month. A fidelity bond with a limit of $100K costs only $280 per year, or less than $25 per month.

Fidelity bonds with low deductibles cost more, but provide better coverage

Small business owners can choose to pay more for a fidelity bond with a lower deductible, or save money in the short term by purchasing a bond with a high deductible. A deductible is the amount that a policyholder must pay out-of-pocket before an insurance policy will cover a claim.

Deductibles on fidelity bonds purchased by Insureon customers range from zero to $150,000. The median policy deductible is $10,000, chosen by 73% of customers. Other popular choices are $25,000 and $50,000.
