Why do I need this bond?

These bonds guarantee that notaries will truly and faithfully perform and discharge the duties of the office according to law.
What’s the fine print?
Illinois notary bonds for residents remain valid for four years and run concurrently with the notary’s commission.
Illinois non-resident notary bonds remain valid for one year. Applicants for a non-resident license and bond must be a resident of a bordering state of Illinois (Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa) and must be employed by a business with a valid Illinois address.
