Nevada Money Transmitter License Bond

Nevada Money Transmitter License Bond

Money Transmitters in Nevada must purchase a Nevada Money Transmitter License Bond in amounts between $10,000 and $250,000 to be eligible for licensure. Nevada money transmitters are subject to regulations at both the federal level by the U.S. Treasury Financial Crimes Network (FinCEN) and the state level by The Nevada Financial Institutions Division (FID). The bond provided by Jet Insurance Company gives financial assurance to the Nevada FID that money transmitters will follow Nevada license law as defined by Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 671.

What Is the Purpose of the Nevada Money Transmitter License Bond?

Nevada requires money transmitters to purchase a bond to protect the public from violations of license law. The bond acts as financial security to reimburse the state for unpaid fees or fines and the public if money transmitters do not process money transmissions in accordance with the law. Jet, as the surety company, gives the State of Nevada the assurance they need to allow organizations to provide valuable money transmitters services and keep the public safe.

In order to obtain or renew a license, a Nevada Money Transmitter License Bond must be filed with the Nevada FID and remain active as long as the money transmitter is in business.

How Do Nevada Money Transmitters Avoid Bond Claims?

Most claims for Nevada Money Transmitters come as a consequence of the annual audit requirements from the state. Each year, applicants must submit an audited financial statement to the Nevada Financial Institutions Division which is reviewed by the state’s CPA and Attorney General. 

The fees for the CPA review and Attorney General must be paid in the 2nd quarter of each year. Unpaid fees are the most common reason the Commissioner will file a claim against the bond. In short, make sure to pay your annual audit fees to avoid most claims.

Money transmitters may also be subject to claims from customers. The claimant can submit claims directly to Jet for review or can file a civil claim in a court of law. Money transmitters who follow the regulations defined by NRS Chapter 671 will avoid most claims, or at least have a defense against frivolous claims.

If the Commissioner takes action against your license, such as a suspension or revocation, money transmitters can request a hearing to defend against the action.

What Happens if I Get a Nevada Money Transmitter Bond Claim?

Jet defends you if you ever receive a claim against your bond. As the Surety, our role is to investigate claims to determine if they are valid and pay claims to aggrieved parties. Not all claims are alike, and our approach and ability to defend the claim will depend primarily on who is submitting the claim.

For Nevada money transmitters, most problems arise due to unpaid CPA and Attorney General fees due from money transmitters each year. The state will assess fees as part of the license renewal process to have your business financials and records audited. Failure to pay these fees can result in a claim against the bond. The Commissioner of the Financial Institutions Division has the authority to demand payment from the Surety (Jet) within 30 days. For these types of claims, it is in the best interest of the money transmitter to pay the state the fees due before we have to step in. 

For claims received from the public, Jet is your advocate and will reach out to you for details to help you mount a defense. We will work with you to resolve any issues before we have to make a payment.
