As part of the state's notary licensing process, you are required to furnish the secretary with evidence of filing a $10,000 surety bond.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds offers this bond for a one time fee of $50, which is good for your six year term.
As you know, a Michigan notary’s job is to witness signatures in an attempt to prevent fraud.
Though the $10,000 Michigan notary public bond is a requirement for licensing, the purpose of the bond is not for your protection at all.
The bond is for the protection of the people of the state of Michigan.
The bond protects these others from acts of fraud, willful negligence, or disregard of Michigan state laws in your duties as notary public.
The existence of this surety bond allows those who can credibly demonstrate harm to file a claim against the bond.
As principal and owner of the surety bond, however, should a claim be paid against your bond, you are legally required to reimburse the surety for all costs and fees involved in the settlement of any claim against you.
Besides obtaining the $10,000 Michigan notary bond, other state requirements include:
Applying for your notary bond with AmeriPro Surety Bonds (and really, any surety bond agency) is very easy.
There is no underwriting nor a credit check involved.
Merely complete the application, providing us also with the date of your commission. After payment of the $50 notary fee, the bond will be sent to you the same or the next business day.
