Washington Notary Bond

Washington notaries are required by law to have a 4 year, $10,000 Washington notary bond. The Washington notary bond protects the people of Washington from any mistakes a notary might make while performing notarial duties. In order to protect your personal financial assets, we highly recommend you also purchase E&O Insurance.

Washington bonds and E&O will be emailed within 12-24 hours after placing an order.

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.

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.
