Merchants Integrates to E-File California CLB Bonds

June 10, 2021

The award-winning Merchants Bonding Company Hub™ is now seamlessly integrated with the California State Licensing Board (CSLB), enabling electronic filing for all approved California contractor license surety bonds, including the $15,000 contractor's license bond (CLB), the $100,000 limited liability corporation (LLC) employee/worker wage bond, and $12,500 bond of qualifying individual (BQI).

Agents enter an existing CSLB contractor’s license or application fee number on the Hub to autofill principal data directly from the CSLB database, eliminating the need to manually enter the data and reducing errors. After the bond is approved and issued, the Hub will automatically send the required bond data to the obligee, the CSLB, for filing.
