Upgrade your Surety Bond and Get Errors and Omission (E/O) insurance policy

Florida notaries are required to purchase a surety bond and errors and omission (E/O) insurance policy in the amount of $25,000 each from an insurer authorized to transact business in Florida.

  • $25,000 Notary Bond

Florida Notaries who already have a $7,500 surety bond for their traditional Notary commissions must increase the bond to $25,000. Please contact your surety company to update the coverage amount.

If your existing Notary bond already meets those requirements, then you do not need to purchase separate or additional coverage!

  • $25,000 E/O Insurance Policy

Here is the list of insurers authorised to transact business in Florida so you can contact with them to get the policy.

An E&O insurance policy protects you from potential errors or omissions that may be made during notarizations.

Once you receive the documents for your new bond and insurance policy, print them out and keep them with your RON Certificate of Completion of educational course, as you’ll need them for the final step!
