Notary Bonds Protect The Public

States typically require a notary bond as a prerequisite to becoming a notary, essentially guaranteeing the public that duties will be performed according to all applicable regulations, and wrong doing avoided.

As a direct writer of notary bonds, Colonial meets the specific requirements of every state. The steps to obtaining a notary bond at Colonial are easy: get a quote online, fill out your information, and enter your payment method. Your bond will be ready to e-file or print in minutes*. It’s so simple, you can obtain your notary bond today.

(* Because these states and territories require a wet signature on notary bonds, Colonial cannot issue them digitally, but promptly mails them upon purchase: CA, HI, PA, Guam and the District of Columbia.)

Insurance Protects The Notary

  • Errors & Omissions Insurance (E&O) protects notaries in the face of allegations of negligence in the performance of duties.  Also known as Professional Liability Insurance (PLI), E&O covers legal defense expenses, and the cost of settlements and judgments in the event of a lawsuit. Bottom line: bonds do not protect notaries—only E&O Insurance does!
  • Cyber Liability Insurance – For added value and increased protection, because so many notaries now work digitally and remotely, Colonial includes Basic Cyber Liability Insurance with the purchase of E&O Insurance. This Cyber Liability coverage provides notaries with critical breach response services, mitigating damage and ensuring that obligatory investigation and notification procedures are implemented. Protection against lawsuits and regulatory actions related to the cybersecurity breach is also included. Don’t let a cyber incident spiral into disaster for the notary business you’ve worked hard to build: obtain protection today.

The Package Protects Everyone:

Notaries who perform public duties must obtain a type of surety bond, referred to as a notary bond, which protects the public. Of course, it is imperative that notaries also protect themselves with Errors and Omissions and Cyber Liability Insurance.

As a direct, nationwide provider of both bonds and insurance, Colonial makes it easy, speedy and affordable for notaries in every state to obtain the protections needed for the public and themselves—in minutes. For the greatest value and protection, opt for our complete notary protection package.

  • The price of the bond is $69.00 no matter what the term of the bond per your state requirement. Your cost at other companies may include taxes, delivery charges, and service fees. Colonial is a direct provider—so we always offer the lowest possible cost direct to you, the notary.

  • Absolutely: It’s best not to waste time with companies that issue generic bonds—which might not meet the specific requirements of the state obligee. Similarly, it’s best not to waste time shuffling between middle players (while your fees add up).
