As a notary, you can personally be held liable for any real or perceived damage caused by errors or misconduct while performing a notarization. Notary Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance covers your assets if you make errors during the notarial process that cause your client to suffer financially. At Lifetime Investments, we’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know to protect yourself personally and professionally.
Why Do I Need Errors and Omissions Insurance?
Er&O Insurance will safeguard you against any mistakes that happen during a notarization. It only takes one error to potentially lose your savings, your Mesa, AZ home, or even your business! Protecting yourself and your assets with liability coverage is very affordable – just pennies a day.
Doesn’t My Employer Cover This?
No, your employer doesn’t cover you against errors and omissions, even if they carry liability insurance. Just as you are responsible for your own journal and seal, you alone are responsible for your notary acts. The Notary commission is not your employer’s, it’s yours.
Doesn’t My Notary Bond Protect Me?
That is a common misconception, but no, your notary bond does not protect you. A notary bod doesn’t protect the notary, it protects the public. If a surety company pays your claim, you have to pay them back. Notary Errors and Omissions insurance will that claim as well as any legal expenses up to your policy limit, without a deductible, and provides free expert legal defense.
Am I Required To Carry Errors and Omissions Insurance By Law?
No, you are not required to carry E&O insurance, but why would you want to risk your assets, Mesa, AZ home, and business for a simple mistake? Errors and Omissions insurance is protection that will provide you with peace of mind.
