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 of these errors 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

What’s the fine print?

This bond is required by the Secretary of State of Missouri. Notary bonds are required to run for the full 4-year term of office of the notary public. The surety must give the obligee at least 30 days prior notice in the event of cancellation.

A Missouri notary public cannot notarize his or her own signature. The notary can only notarize documents in Missouri. A proper notarization must contain:

  • the signature of the notary
  • a notarial certificate stating the document was signed before the notary
  • the signature of the notary as commissioned
  • the seal or stamp of the notary public
