A notary surety bond protects the public from mistakes you make while performing your notarial duties during the term of your commission that result in damage to the public.
If you would like coverage that protects you from the financial damage that could result from making a notarial mistake, you should consider a Notary Errors & Omissions policy. Subject to policy limits and provisions, an E&O policy will protect you, the notary, from financial harm.

Click the circle beside the premium that is displayed and then select a Quantity of 1 in the box below. South Dakota license number C9026.
The premiums in the gold boxes are for policies with terms shorter than your notary commission.
The premiums in the blue boxes are for policies with terms that match your notary commission. If you are at the beginning of your notary commission, we recommend purchasing a full-term policy so that you will never be without coverage during your commission.

This policy is currently available in the following states only: AL, AK, AZ, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, ME, MD, MA, MI, MS, MO, MT, NE, NV, NH, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, DC, WV and WI.

Choose from one of the following coverage levels:
All policies are for a term of 1-year and Notary Rotary Membership is required.
Our Signing Agent Errors & Omissions Insurance Policy is designed to fill the gaps left with traditional Notary Errors & Omissions Insurance, which only provides coverage for the actual notarizations in a loan package. The new policy, which includes defense costs, provides coverage for actions such as:
Innocent errors or omissions related to Signing Agent Notarial acts
Incorrectly dating the Right of Rescission
Missed initials or non-notarized signatures
Improper corrections made to documents
Failure to complete the signing on time
Late return of date-sensitive documents
Innocent mistakes happen, no matter how careful you are. Consider a few cases where traditional notary errors and omissions insurance would not apply:
A notary signing agent completed a loan closing and was responsible for returning the documents via expedited mail. However, the notary accidentally threw away the wrong envelope and the documents were never sent.
A signing agent completed a closing, put the documents in the mail, and completed all required assignments. However, the title company never received the documents and accused the signing agent of never sending them and delaying the closing.
A mortgage lender sued a signing agent for failing to provide customers with copies of documents, which resulted in a change in rescission date.

This Notary Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy offers vital protection from lawsuits for your current commission term.
Why would I want this policy?
The South Dakota Notary Public Errors and Omissions Policy is a form of liability insurance that protects you, acting as a duly commissioned and sworn South Dakota Notary Public, during the policy period and subject to the policy limits, from claims or suits that are the result of your negligent acts, errors or omissions. Unlike a notary bond, which only protects the public, this policy will pay for investigation, defense and settlement of committed or alleged acts by the insured subject to the policy's liability limit. Once that limit has been paid by the insurer, the policy stops providing coverage and you are personally responsible for any additional legal fees or damages.
What if I cancel or want to upgrade?
Most policies we carry have been filed with state insurance departments as having "fully-earned" premiums.
This means that the premium is non-refundable
. However, if a higher coverage amount is available during the term of your policy and you would like to upgrade to it, you may do so. Just give us a call so that we may calculate the pro-rated upgrade cost for you.
This is NOT the South Dakota notary bond you need to obtain your commission
A notary bond in the amount of $5,000.00 is required in South Dakota to become a South Dakota notary public. The bond must be purchased separately. Because the bond only protects the public and because any money paid by the surety on your behalf can be recovered from you, we
you purchase notary E&O coverage in an amount
equal to the bond amount of $5,000.00. We also recommend purchasing coverage for the entire term of your commission so that you don't forget to renew, which could leave you unprotected should a mistake be made. South Dakota notaries public are commissioned for a term of 6 years.
