If you are looking into becoming a notary, you will be required to carry Notary Service Insurance, also called errors and omissions insurance. In most states, a policy is required to be licensed as a notary. One of the questions that we at Lifetime Investments are asked by those new to this type of insurance is what exactly is it and what does it cover. Here are the answers to these questions.
Notary service insurance is designed to protect you in case you make an error when completing the notary process. This includes allowing someone to sign a form that they shouldn’t, incorrectly signing on the wrong line, or failing to look at identification before allowing the parties to sign documents that need to be notarized.
If you make an error on a notarized form, a party that is harmed by the incorrect information can come back and sue you. It is your job to follow certain steps as a notary and if you fail to do so or fail to correctly do so, you can be held liable for their losses or damages done to the party. This can cause a huge financial loss to both your business and personal accounts. Notary service insurance helps to insure you against these losses. As long as you were acting in good faith when the error was made, your insurance policy will cover the losses up to the policy amount, that you may have due to litigations or awards. This helps to ensure you and your business are not harmed because of a mistake or error that was made.
