Arkansas Notary Surety Bond
Arkansas law requires all Notaries to purchase and maintain a $7,500 Notary surety bond for the duration of their 10-year commission. The Notary bond protects the public of Arkansas against any financial loss due to improper conduct by an Arkansas Notary.
This bond does not insure you – The Notary. To protect you, we recommend Notary Errors & Omissions Insurance. Policies cover your legal defense by an attorney with expertise in Notary law in addition to your claim, legal fees and court costs, up to your policy coverage amount. And there’s no deductible or repayment of losses.
You can purchase your Arkansas Notary bond through us.
Once you have received your commission certificates from the state, take your original bond form to the Recorder of Deeds in your county of commission. The Recorder will keep your original bond and one certificate.
(Please note that each county is different.)
