Why do I need a notary bond in Kansas?
The Kansas Secretary of State requires notaries submit a four-year $12,000 surety bond prior to being commissioned.
By purchasing a notary surety bond, the notary guarantees that he or she will notarize all documents lawfully and ethically. If the notary public fails to do so, the person in need of a notarized document will be protected from errors made by the notary. This bond ensures that the applicant cannot violate the public’s trust through negligence of his or her duties without funds being available to reimburse those who suffer losses.
