Notary Bonds & 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 is important to understand. In short, a notary bond protects the public; notary errors and omissions insurance protects you. 

Notaries often provide other services: tax preparation, service of process, vehicle registration, legal document assistant services, immigration consulting services, and more. The Other Surety Bonds category includes a variety of additional bonds a notary public may need.
