Why do I need this bond?

By posting a surety bond, Wisconsin notaries guarantee that they will faithfully perform all duties commissioned to them. If a notary fails to adhere to the rules and regulations of the state of Wisconsin, the bond protects the state and general public from financial losses resulting from the notary’s negligence or faulty business practices up to the full bond amount. The notary must then reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Wisconsin notary bonds must be submitted to the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions. They will run continuously for four years from the effective date.

The bond must be sent in the same envelope as your complete oath of office, application and $20 application filing fee.
