What happens to my bond? In Illinois, bonds purchased from the NNA are processed by the NNA, and then sent to the state of Illinois. The bond is never sent to you directly. The bond is delivered to the state once your completed application has been sent to the NNA, as the bond form is part of the application. IMPORTANT - Processing your Illinois Application/Bond Form The state of Illinois requires an original application to be mailed. Once you have filled out your Notary application, mail your original completed application and bond form to the National Notary Association. Once your application has been processed by the state, you will receive notification from the county clerk. You must appear within 30 days to receive and record your commission.
