National Notary Bond Program
In most states, notaries are considered a public officer and their duties are to be performed in accordance with state law and include witnessing signatures, verifying identities of signers, remaining impartial and certifying or attesting a copy. Notaries are required by law to take an oath and to purchase and maintain a notary surety bond for their entire term of office. Let Alliant/Mesirow Insurance Services help you obtain the necessary notary surety bond required to comply with the requirements of a notary public.

This policy belongs to you and should not be submitted to the state.
