What is a Postal Unit Surety Bond and why do I need one?

If you are interested in becoming a Contract Postal Unit (CPU) for the U.S. Postal Service, you may be required to obtain a Postal Unit Surety Bond in order to perform postal services. This bond is a guarantee to the USPS that you will fulfill the duties of your contract and account for all supplies provided by USPS as well as money owed to them. The Postal Unit Surety Bond protects the USPS from economic loss caused by any wrongdoing on the part of your company. In the event of a claim, the surety company will pay the USPS (however, you must pay the surety company).

How do I get a Postal Unit Surety Bond and how much does it cost?

Most CPUs are required to obtain a Postal Unit Surety bond. When you apply to become a supplier with the USPS, they will let you know if you require a Postal Unit Surety bond. The fee for this type of bond varies depending on many factors, including the type of USPS services you will be offering.

Surety1 has access to 18 markets. We will work with our reputable partners to get your bond for the lowest fee possible.
