The State of New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI), Licensing Services Bureau regulates and administers the Money Transmitter and Foreign Money Transmitter programs and has oversight of the licensing, as well as handling of auditing and consumer complaints. The New Jersey Money Transmitter Act requires any person that is in the business of money transmission services such as the sale of checks, money orders, travelers checks, receipt of money transmissions, and receipt of monies for the purpose of payments, to first obtain a license.
The premium that you pay for a New Jersey Money Transmitter or Foreign Money Surety Bond is dependent on credit and the bond amount required. Personal and business financial statements will be required for the underwriting process for bond amounts over $50,000.
A change of control is required for any transfer or sale of a 25% or more controlling interest in the business.
