Notaries in South Dakota are licensed and regulated by the South Dakota Secretary of State.
The term of your commission is for a period of 6 years, and you are required to obtain a $5000 surety bond. The bond is a onetime payment of $50 for the term of your commission.
You are automatically approved for the $5000 South Dakota notary bond, and the procedure for acquiring your bond is just by answering a few simple questions and paying the premium.
When you call us, we’ll ask you the following:
After payment of the $50 premium, our agency issues the bond to you immediately. It is the original bond which you will sign and file with the Secretary of State.
Your bond is sent to you by regular mail. Overnight delivery is available for an additional fee.
Upon receipt, you’ll sign your original bond as Applicant, and then file your surety bond to, along with a $30 fee to:
Secretary of State
500 East Capitol Avenue
Pierre, SD 57501
Your notary bond is not an insurance policy; it does not protect you in the least. The bond, besides being a requirement for licensing, is a financial guarantee for the state of South Dakota that you will conduct notarial acts in accordance with all laws and regulations.
The bond protects others from a license notary who is negligent or acts fraudulently.
