Kansas Notary Surety Bond and Application
All new and renewing notaries in Kansas are required to have a Kansas notary bond. Add Notary E&O Insurance covering the term of your commission.
The Kansas Notary Public Bond and Appointment Form includes the Kansas notary application, oath of office, and a 4-year, $12,000 Kansas notary bond. The Appointment Form is required for all persons applying to become a Kansas notary public. The surety bond included in the appointment form protects the public – the people of Kansas – from mistakes made by the notary in the performance of his or her duties. The notary will be personally responsible for reimbursing all claims made against the bond.
In order to help protect themselves from claims against the notary bond and notarial lawsuits, the notary must purchase Optional Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance coverage. E&O is sometimes referred to as professional liability insurance. Travelers requires that E&O, if desired, be purchased at the time the notary bond is purchased.
The Travelers bond and insurance combo may only be purchased at the beginning of a commission term. In order to qualify for this product combination, you must meet our underwriting guidelines and purchase within six months of the start of the commission. If you fail to meet the underwriting guidelines, your payment will be refunded.
