Nevada Notary Bond | AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732
The state of Nevada requires active notaries to maintain a surety bond on file in the amount of $10,000 with the Nevada Secretary of State.
A Nevada notary commission is valid for 4 years from the date of issuance.
Nevada Notary Bond
A Nevada notary bond is an “Instant Issue” surety bond. This means that there is only a simple application, payment of the premium ($50), and the Nevada notary bond is issued by AmeriPro Surety Bonds to you.
This bond involves no credit or background check.
Once received, you will need to have the bond filed with the Nevada Secretary of State. The bond is valid for as long as your commission is valid, that is, for a period of 4 years.
Understanding your Nevada notary bond…what it is not
A misconception on the part of some is that a notary bond is an insurance bond for the notary. This is entirely erroneous.
The truth is that a notary bond, required by the Nevada Secretary of State, protects the public, not the notary, from illegal, negligent, and acts of malfeasance on the part of the notary.
As such, a notary bond may be thought of as a type of insurance police that a notary purchases to protect the public.
Yet, it is not exactly like an insurance policy. Unlike insurance, any payments made on a claim by a notary surety bond must be fully reimbursed by the owner of that bond.
Errors and Omissions Insurance—Insurance for and on behalf of the notary
AmeriPro Surety Bonds strongly encourage all notary agents to purchase an Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance policy for a small additional premium. This is in addition to the notary bond.
An E&O policy is not required to obtain your notary license. But, unlike a notary bond, E&O insurance is for the notary, personally.
The small additional fee involved for the E&O policy, in addition to the notary bond, is a sound business decision. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
