Your Arkansas Notary Surety Bond

Arkansas law requires all Notaries to purchase and maintain a $7,500 Notary surety bond for the duration of their 10-year commission. The Notary bond protects the public of Arkansas against any financial loss due to improper conduct by an Arkansas Notary. The bond is NOT insurance protection for Arkansas Notaries. 


Do I need anything besides my bond?

You can purchase your Arkansas Notary bond on its own or as part of an NNA Notary supply package. To purchase an Arkansas Notary supply package that includes your Notary bond, official Notary stamp, journal and everything you need to properly perform your duties, click on the Become or Renew buttons below.

How to process your bond

Once you have received your commission certificates from the state, take your original bond form to the Recorder of Deeds in your county of commission. The Recorder will keep your original bond and one certificate.
(Please note that each county is different.)


We recommend you protect yourself for the length of your 10 year, Arkansas Notary commission term with Errors & Ommission Insurance.
