Why do I need this bond?

Arkansas notary bonds ensure that the principal (notary) complies with Act 304 of 1989 and all other Arkansas laws. Notaries must witness a signature by:

  • being present at the signing
  • personally knowing the signer
  • having proof to identify the signer
  • recognizing a signature by virtue of familiarity
  • and more

If a notary public fails to comply with any of the terms of the act and the surety bond contract, a claim can be filed against the bond. If the claim is validated, the surety underwriting company will cover all financial losses suffered by the state and general public up to the full bond amount. The notary must then reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
