Washington DC Notary Bond

Notaries in Washington DC are required by law to have a $1,000 Washington DC notary bond. The Washington DC notary bond protects the people of Washington DC from any mistakes a notary might make while performing notarial acts.

In order to protect your personal financial assets, we highly recommend that you also purchase E&O Insurance. 

Notary E&O Insurance helps protect you from lawsuits arising from the performance of your notarial duties. If you make a mistake, a claim may be made on your bond and you may be sued. Without an E&O policy, you will be fully responsible for reimbursing the bond claim and for the cost of your legal defense.
