Notary Bonds & Insurance
This category contains bonds and insurance. Notaries are required to be bonded in approximately 30 states. A notary surety bond protects the public from mistakes the notary makes that result in harm to others. In those instances, a claim can be made against the bond. Errors and omissions insurance, on the other hand, protects that notary subject to policy terms and conditions.
The differences between a notary bond and errors and omissions insurance are extremely important to understand. Please see our Notary Bonds v. Insurance article to learn more.
