The bail bond premium is the amount you (the indemnitor) will pay the bail agency prior to the release of the defendant.

For example, if the bail amount has been set at $25,000, you will pay a $2,500 premium to the bail agency for the defendant’s release. This amount is rendered upon the release of the defendant and is non-refundable; even if the case is dismissed or no charges are filed. The premium is earned by the bail bondsman upon the defendant being released from jail.
