What is a Notary Bond?

If you're exploring notary opportunities in California you might be surprised to learn that you need a notary bond. It's not uncommon for people to have never needed or even heard of notary bonds unless they have experience with notary services, but don't worry, they're not difficult to understand! A notary bond is a form of surety bond, which is a contract between three parties. Although surety bonds are often mistaken for insurance, they do not provide insurance protection for the notary. The three parties in the surety contract are:

  • The principal – this is the notary
  • The obligee – the agency requiring the bond
  • The surety – the bond guarantor

Notary bonds provide a form of financial guarantee that the notary will follow California regulations regarding the duties of a licensed notary, and if they fail to do so the state can make a claim against the bond. The surety will pay the bond claim on behalf of the notary, however, the notary will then be required to repay the surety for all claim costs. A notary bond provides no financial protection for the notary, but instead for the California public served by the notary.
