The Louisiana notary bond is a $10,000 surety bond required by the Louisiana Secretary of State. The bond is issued once for the length of your commission of 5 years. The onetime premium is just $50.00.
Every applicant will be approved for this surety bond. There is no credit check nor underwriter review. After payment of the premium, the bond is issued to you immediately. A copy of the bond can be emailed to you, and the original copy, which you will need to sign before filing with the Secretary of State, will be sent to you by mail the following business day.
The purpose of the Louisiana notary bond is for the protection of the people of Louisiana. It is a financial guarantee that a licensed notary will comply with all rules and regulations involved in performing notarial acts.
So, while the surety bond is required as a condition of licensing, it is not an insurance policy. The notary bond does not protect the you as a licensed notary; essentially it protects others from wrongful or harmful acts committed by a notary.
As the owner (or Principal) of this bond, you are responsible for any claims --- if such were to occur --- paid by the surety against your bond.
