Why do I need this bond?

Missouri notary bonds protect the public and state from financial losses and other consequences resulting from a notary public’s wrongdoings. The bond ensures compensation for an individual harmed as a result of errors or mistakes committed by a notary while on the job. Some potential errors committed by notaries include:

  • Notarizing a signature that the notary knows to be false or fraudulent
  • Notarizing a family member’s document
  • Notarizing a document that includes or benefits the notary
  • Notarizing his or her own signature

What’s the fine print?

This bond is required by the Secretary of State of Missouri and is issued to coincide with the notary’s four-year term. The surety must give the obligee at least 30 days’ notice prior to cancelling the bond.

The notary can only notarize documents in Missouri. A proper notarization must contain:

  • Signature of notary
  • Notarial certificate stating the document was signed before notary
  • Signature of the notary as commissioned
  • Seal or stamp of notary public
