State of Connecticut - Insurance Department

The annual assessment must be paid online. Click here to access the Annual Assessment & Bail Bond License Renewal Payment Portal.

You will need your license number and a credit or debit card in order to use the portal.

PLEASE NOTE: when entering the portal to make a payment, choose “Licensee of the CT Insurance Department” and then on the next page choose “An Invoice”. The fee will be $450.00. Any other dollar amount submitted will be incorrect and will delay your assessment being paid by the deadline.

There is no grace period for payment. Failure to submit the annual assessment by the January 31st, 2021 deadline will result in administrative action.

Additional Information:

In order to ensure that you receive your assessment notices in the future, you must provide the Department with your individual and business email addresses, in accordance with C.G.S. 38a-769.

Licensees are responsible for keeping demographic information, including email addresses, updated at all times. The Department is not responsible for lost, misdirected or unpaid assessments. Addresses and other information can be updated online by visiting the Insurance Department website and selecting the “Bail Bonds Regulation” link halfway down the page under the middle column titled “Insurance Companies”. Under “online submissions” select “change/update address or contact Information”.

If you have further questions, submit an email to the Bail Bonds mailbox at BAILBONDS@CT.GOV with “Assessment” in the subject line.

*Not paying the assessment will not automatically cancel your license. Should you wish to cancel your license, please send a written request to cancel your surety bail bond license which includes your name, license number and a telephone number. The cancellation will be completed upon receipt of the written request.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
