Need a Notary Bond, or Error & Omissions Insurance?

The State of Alabama requires all notaries to purchase a $25,000 Notary Bond to cover the four-year commission period.  This is a MANDATORY requirement.  The Notary Bond must be renewed every four years and filed with your home county's courthouse.  The cost for the Notary Bond is $50.00 for the 4-year commission period.


Error and Omissions Insurance (E&O) is optional but strongly recommended.  Notaries can purchase as little as  $10,000 of E & O insurance,  and higher.   The cost for E & O is based on the amount of insurance you request.

Michelle L. Riley is an independent, licensed insurance agent who can answer your questions about the Notary Bond and E&O Insurance.  You can purchase both in a matter of minutes by phone, via email, or (if you're in Huntsville) face-to-face.  The Bond & Policy can be sent to you electronically.
