Missouri Notary Surety Bonds
Missouri law requires all Notaries to purchase and maintain a $10,000 Notary surety bond for the duration of their 4-year commission. The Notary bond protects the general public of Missouri against any financial loss due to improper conduct by a Missouri 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 Missouri Notary bond with us.
How to process your bond
Processing your Missouri Notary Surety Bond is the last step in the commission process. Once you are a commissioned Notary, you have 30 DAYS from your Commission Certificate date to file your bond and take your oath of office at your county clerk’s office.
NOTE: If you have missed your bond filing date, you will need an amended bond. Contact us here if that is the case.
