    Hi Samantha,

    Please review the following information and let me know which option you would like for the CO Surety Bond and CO E&O

    CO MLO Surety Bond – Individual vs Company Policy

    Do you want to obtain an Individual CO Surety Bond for each MLO, or a Company CO MLO Surety Bond to cover all MLOs with the company? It is usually cost effective to get a Company bond if you have more than 5 CO Licensed LOs.

    1. If you already have a Company CO MLO Surety Bond, please email to me.

    2. If you want to order the Individual CO MLO Surety Bond yourself, you may order here: https://suretysolutions.com/free-quotes/?state=portal&account=2&bondTypeId=5004&bondAmount=25000

    CO MLO E&O – Individual vs Company Policy

    Do you want to obtain an Individual CO E&O for each MLO or a Company CO E&O Policy? Most Company E&O Policies do not cover the CO requirement, so you usually need to obtain Individual CO E&O for your MLOs even if you have a Company E&O Policy. You can obtain a CO Company E&O Policy, but it is usually not cost effective until you have 20+ CO LOs.

    1. If you would like us to verify if your Company E&O Policy covers this requirement, please email to us and we will forward to Cory McDonald and Kyle Towe for review.

    2. If you want to order the CO Individual E&O yourself, you may order here: https://suretysolutions.com/free-quotes/?state=portal&account=2&bondTypeId=59&bondAmount=500000

    · If you need help ordering, let us know which option you want, Individual CO E&O or Company CO E&O
