Texas Notary Bonds & Insurance

Your state-required Notary Bond protects the public. Notary E&O Insurance protects you.

Protect Yourself for as Little as $2 a Month with a Notary E&O Policy

Notary E&O Insurance is your protection should you make an innocent mistake or a false claim is filed against you.  Your Texas required Notary Surety Bond is protection for the public against any misconduct on your behalf. We offer protection for both.

  • Notary Errors & Omissions Insurance

    Protect Yourself from the Unexpected

    Notary E&O Insurance is designed to protect Notaries.  If you make an unintentional mistake or a false claim is filed against you, it could cost you thousands of dollars to defend yourself in a lawsuit simply to prove you acted responsibly. Don't assume you are covered by your employer. With Errors & Omissions Insurance from the NNA you don't have to worry. Why take a chance?

    We recommend you purchase a policy that equals the length of your 4-year, Texas Notary Commission term.

Why do I need E&O Insurance when my state already requires me to purchase a bond?
 

It’s a common misconception that Notaries are covered by their state-required bond should they make an unintentional mistake.  But this is not true.

A bond protects the public, not the Notary. And if there is a claim filed against a Notary's bond, they are required by law to pay it back, in addition to any legal fees incurred. However, if a Notary has an E&O policy, their policy will cover all of these expenses, up to their policy limit.  Why take a chance?

 NNA E&O policies include:

  • Your legal defense by Notary law experts
  • Your claim, legal fees and court costs — up to your policy limit
  • No deductible and requires no repayment of losses

 Various limits of liability are available to meet your individual needs.
