What Is a Notary Bond?

A notary bond is a type of surety bond required by many states to guarantee that notaries will perform their duties ethically and lawfully. 

If a notary fails to meet this obligation, a claim can be made against the bond by the state or the harmed parties. If a claim is valid, the bond amount reimburses the harmed parties, thereby protecting both the state and consumers from financial loss.
