Why does a notary public in Arizona need to be bonded?
The Arizona Secretary of State requires notaries to post a $5,000 bond to ensure that they adhere to all laws, rules and regulations stated in the Arizona Revised Statutes—specifically Title 41.
Arizona notary surety bonds ensure if any of these provisions are violated and a valid claim is made against the bond, the surety will cover any damages up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What is errors & ommissions insurance?
Errors and omissions insurance (also referred to as E & O insurance) is an optional add-on that protects the notary in the event that the client seeks financial compensation due to a mistake made by the notary. The surety bond is different because it protects the public, whereas E & O protects the notary. By purchasing errors and omissions insurance, the notary will be protected in the case of a lawsuit up to the policy amount they have purchased.
