Arkansas notaries are licensed and regulated by the Arkansas Secretary of State. A $7,500 surety bond is also required. The surety bond’s premium is a onetime payment for the length of your commission, which is 10 years.
Obtaining the surety bond with our agency will be easy and will take only a few minutes.
You are automatically approved for the $7500 Arkansas notary bond. The application is short and easy, and we’ll have the bond issued for you in a matter of minutes.
It’s important that the wording you provide our agency (i.e. your name, county) matches exactly with the information you’ve provided in your application. Discrepancies are a common reason for rejection of your notary license application (See Question 10)
We’ll need the following from you:
After payment of the premium, the bond is issued to you immediately. A copy of the bond can be sent along with your application to the Secretary of State and the original bond – which we’ll mail to you, will be filed with your local Recorder of Deeds (see Question 34 from the above link).
At your request, we can also email your notary surety bond before mailing the original bond to you.
The premium, a onetime payment for your commission term, is just $50.
Some people may have the misconception that a notary bond is an insurance bond, but it is not. The bond doesn’t protect you as an Arkansas notary public; it protects others from harmful acts committed by a notary.
The bond is therefore a financial guarantee of your compliance with all laws relating to your duties as an Arkansas notary.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds is a surety bonds-only agency which provides notary bonds in all states where this is mandated by law.
