The Best Protection Against Costly Litigation

In most states, notaries are considered a public officer and their duties are to be performed in accordance with state law and include witnessing signatures, verifying identities of signers, remaining impartial and certifying or attesting a copy. Notaries are required by law to take an oath and to purchase and maintain a notary surety bond for their entire term of office.

Complimentary Notary Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance

You may also receive a complimentary notary errors and omissions (E&O) insurance policy for your personal use. This policy is sometimes issued with the notary bond and provides coverage for allegations made against you for any negligent act, error or omission arising out of your performance of notarial service for others. This E&O insurance policy belongs to you and should not be submitted to the state.
