Why do I need this bond?
The Wyoming Secretary of State requires notaries to post $500 surety bonds prior to being commissioned. Notary surety bonds protect the public from any wrongdoings committed by notaries while on the job. Specifically, these bonds ensure that notaries comply with all rules and regulations of the state of Wyoming, including refraining from notarizing documents that have forged signatures or documents that benefit or include the notary in any way.
If a claim is filed against the bond, the bond protects the state and general public from financial loss up to the full bond amount. The notary, in turn, must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Wyoming notary bonds remain valid for four years. For this particular bond, applicants must know the county in which they will be conducting notarial business.
