Pennsylvania Notaries

The Pennsylvania notary bond is a $10,000 surety bond required by the Commonwealth’s Department of State.

The notary commission granted by Department is for a period of 4 years.

The notary bond has just a onetime premium of just $50.00 and lasts for the duration of your 4-year commission.

 

 

 

Pennsylvania Notary Bond: Its Purpose

The Pennsylvania notary bond is not an insurance policy which protects you as a notary.

Rather, the notary surety bond exists to protect members of the public – your fellow citizens in the Commonwealth — from wrongful or fraudulent acts committed by a notary in the performance of their professional duties.

The notary bond serves as a guarantee that persons who can really demonstrate and prove financial harm may recover their losses up to the bond’s $10,000 amount (in total).

Should a claim be paid on a surety bond, it is the legal responsibility of the notary to reimburse the surety for all costs involved.

For this reason, though it is not required for licensing, applicants for the notary bond may wish to consider a low-cost Errors and Omissions policy which may protect against unintentional wrongful acts.

 

 

 

Qualifying for the Notary Bond

 

 

 

Qualifying for the notary bond is simple.

There is a short application which is easiest to complete directly over the phone.

We’ll ask the basics: Name, address, date of your commission, etc.

There is no credit check. The bond will be issued immediately upon completion of the application and payment of the premium.

 

 

 

Becoming a Notary in Pennsylvania

 

 

 

In addition to the $50.00 $10,000 Pennsylvania notary bond, to become a notary in the Commonwealth, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old;
  • Be a resident or be employed in the Commonwealth;
  • Not be disqualified because of certain criminal convictions;
  • Be a United States citizen or a legal resident;
  • Be able to speak English.

As for the application process itself, to become a notary:

  • Complete an application which may be done online;
  • Pay a $42 application fee (the fee is nonrefundable);
  • Pay the $65 notary examination fee;
  • Pass a qualifying examination (first time applicants. Applicants who are renewing their license, if they do so before their commission expires, are not required to take another exam; otherwise they are);
  • Once appointed by the state after the above you must register your signature with the Protonotary and file your Pennsylvania notary bond within 45 days of your appointment.  If you do not you must begin the licensing process all over again and your commission becomes null and void.
