Arkansas Notary Bond
The State of Arkansas requires notaries to purchase a notary bond. A notary bond is a surety bond that protects the public against any wrongdoing on the part of a notary. The notary bond will compensate an individual harmed as a result of errors or mistakes performed by an Arkansas notary.
The Arkansas notary bond is a $7,500 bond and is valid throughout your 10-year notary commission in the State of Arkansas. In addition to the notary bond, it is also required that an Arkansas notary obtain a state-approved notary seal and pay a $20 state filing fee. The notary bond and a notarial seal are available in our basic notary package.

The notary bond DOES NOT protect the notary!
Should an error or mistake occur while performing a notarial act, the Arkansas notary is liable to reimburse the surety company for the loss. A notary will need to purchase an Arkansas Notary Public Errors and Omissions Insurance policy to ensure his or her protection. A notary insurance policy will ease your mind and help you to perform your notarial duties with renewed confidence. Don't let an innocent mistake set you back thousands of dollars. Notary Public Underwriters also offers employers group errors and omissions insurance policies. Visit our insurance page to read more about the benefits of a group policy for your corporate needs.
