Montana Notary Bond
The State of Montana 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 a Montana notary.
The Montana notary bond is a $10,000 bond and is valid throughout your 4-year notary commission in the State of Montana. In addition to the notary bond, it is also required that a Montana notary obtain a state-approved notary seal and pay a $25 state filing fee. The notary bond, state filing fee, 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 Montana notary is liable to reimburse the surety company for the loss. A notary will need to purchase a Montana Notary Public Errors and Omissions Insurance policy to ensure his or her protection. Notary Public Underwriters highly recommends E&O protection for our notary customers.
