CT - Other Information of Interest
Notaries in the State of Connecticut are appointed for terms of five (5) years which expire on the last day of the month in which the notary was originally appointed. Each term is separate.
Renewal applications are mailed three months in advance of the expiration date to the address recorded in the CT Notary Public Database. If a particular notary public fails to record changes of address, it will be unlikely that they will receive the renewal application. As a consequence, the notary's term may expire. For further information see "Changes of Name & Address" below.
