Florida Notary Bond
The State of Florida requires notaries to purchase a notary bond. A notary bond is a surety bond that protects the public against any wrongdoing on the part of a notary. The notary bond will compensate an individual harmed as a result of errors or mistakes performed by a Florida notary.
The Florida notary bond is a $7,500 bond and is valid throughout your 4-year notary commission in the State of Florida. In addition to the notary bond, it is also required that a Florida notary obtain a state-approved notary seal and pay a $39 state filing fee. The notary bond, state filing fee, and a notarial seal are available in our basic notary package. If you are a new notary, the State of Florida requires you to take a notary education course. Our new notary package includes state-approved online notary training.

The notary bond DOES NOT protect the notary!
Should an error or mistake occur while performing a notarial act, the Florida notary is liable to reimburse the surety company for the loss. A notary will need to purchase a Florida Notary Public Errors and Omissions Insurance policy to ensure his or her protection.
Don't confuse the required Notary Bond with and Errors & Omissions Insurance Policy.
