Your Washington DC Notary Surety Bond

Washington DC law requires all Notaries to purchase and maintain a $2,000 Notary surety bond for the duration of their 5-year commission. The Notary bond protects the public of Washington DC against any financial loss due to improper conduct by a Washington DC Notary. The bond is NOT insurance protection for Washington DC Notaries.
