What Is the Difference Between Bonds and E&O Insurance? 

Bonds and E&O insurance are both important for notaries. The main difference is that bonds help protect the public, while E&O insurance helps protect you. Bonds guarantee that your clients will get their money back if you make a mistake.
On the other hand, E&O insurance helps cover you as a notary. For instance, if you make a mistake in your notary services and a client sues you, this coverage can help pay your legal expenses and court costs. You’ll pay your insurance company a monthly premium for coverage and they’ll help pay the insurance claim filed against you. This coverage isn’t always required by law.
