Washington Notary Bond

Washington state Notary Bond | AmeriPro Surety Bonds | 844-589-9732

Becoming a notary in Washington state…

In addition to other requirements, to become a notary in Washington state, applicants must be at least 18 years old and able to both speak and write in English.

Interestingly, a licensed notary in Washington state may also be a resident of Oregon or Idaho, although regular employment in Washington is required.

Washington Notary Bond: Instant Issue Surety Bond

Notary commissions in Washington state are issued for a period of four (4) years.

The Washington state notary bond is for $10,000.  The cost of the bond is $50.

This surety bond is an “Instant Issue” bond with AmeriPro Surety Bonds!

An “Instant Issue” bond means that there are no background or credit checks required to purchase this surety bond.  You merely fill out the application and pay your premium fee, which is good for 4 years.  The bond is thereafter issued immediately for filing with Washington state.

A Notary Bond:  Who it protects…

A Washington notary bond (and any notary bond) protects only the public from acts of wrongdoing by a notary; it is not “insurance” on behalf of the notary.

Notary bonds may more correctly be thought of as a form of “insurance” that the notary purchases for the consumer/customer to protect against negligently wrongful acts committed by the notary.

Errors and Omissions Insurance:  What it is and why you should purchase this insurance along with your notary bond…

Because a notary bond does not protect the notary at all, it is common — and strongly recommended — that all Washington notary agents also purchase an Errors and Omissions insurance (E&O) policy in addition to the notary bond.  This is for a small additional premium (by small, we mean an additional $20-40).

E&O insurance is a real insurance policy, not a surety bond, which the notary agent purchases as legal protection for themselves.

AmeriPro Surety Bonds

AmeriPro Surety Bonds offers both Washington notary bonds and E&O insurance for active notary agents.
