Why do I need this bond?
Indiana notary surety bonds ensure that principals (notary publics) will not:
- notarize anything under a different name than what has been authorized by the Commission
- notarize any document where the notary is listed as an invested party on the document
- administer an oath to any person considered mentally incompetent by a court or under guardianship without the guardian present
These provisions and all other laws found in the Indiana Code are required to be followed under the bond. If a notary public violates any of these rules and regulations, he or she can be removed from the position by the state.

What’s the fine print?
The state does not have a specific bond form. Your bond will be issued on a generic form provided by the insurance company. The insurance company must provide the state with at least 30 days notice prior to canceling the bond.
Indiana notary surety bonds remain in effect for 8 years. If the surety or principal decides to cancel this bond for any reason, 30 days’ notice prior to termination is required.
