HOW TO GET YOUR BOND
SDC, an Arkansas Corporation authorized by Act No.304 of 1989, is the only general business corporation in Arkansas that is represented by Independent Agents. SDC has an agent in many Arkansas counties.
It is a belief of SDC that local Independent Agents can give more personal service to issue your bond and get you commissioned as a Notary Public.
To get your bond issued in person, visit the SDC Agent near you. Look up the name and address of the SDC Agent in your county.
Enter the correct required information in the APPLICATION FOR NOTARY BOND form.
Required spaces are indicated by an asterisk (*).
When you have completed the application form, read the INDEMNITY AGREEMENT and acknowledge that you accept the agreeement by typing "I agree" in the designated space. When you have successfully completed the form and click on "Submit" you will be taken to the payment screen.
The price of the bond for the full 10 year term is $35.
After you complete payment the application information will be transmitted to Southern Development Corporation and your bond will be issued promptly. Your bond will be mailed to you on the same day if you submit the application before 3 P.M. on Monday through Friday; after that it will be mailed on the next business day. The application information will be used only by Southern Development Corporation for the purpose of issuing your Notary Bond and will not be made available to anyone else.
