Indiana Notary Bond
The State of Indiana 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 Indiana notary.
The Indiana notary bond is a $5,000 bond and is valid throughout your 8-year notary commission in the State of Indiana. In addition to the notary bond, it is also required that an Indiana notary obtain a state-approved notary seal and pay a $10 state filing fee. The notary bond and notarial seal are available in our premium notary package.

The notary bond DOES NOT protect the notary!
Should an error or mistake occur while performing a notarial act, the Indiana notary is liable to reimburse the surety company for the loss. A notary will need to purchase an Indiana Notary Public Errors and Omissions Insurance policy to ensure his or her protection.
Don't confuse the required Notary Bond with an Errors & Omissions Insurance Policy.
