Is claims adjusting right for you?

One of the last ‘hidden gem’ careers in America. Insurance adjusting is a stable industry with excellent earning potential. But, it is not for everybody.
 
  • The hard skills and qualifications necessary to become an adjuster are relatively simple. You need to be at least 18 years old. Hold a valid driver’s license and be a bonafide resident of your state. These are just a few examples. But, it’s the soft qualities that set great adjusters apart. You need self-discipline, an excellent worth ethic, and great communication skills.
 
  • Claims adjusting is a challenging but rewarding career. The pay is certainly good and helping people get back on their feet after a loss is a satisfying line of work.
 
  • Insurance adjusters are in demand in any economy since claims remain steady. This is regardless of economic factors. What about insurance adjuster salaries? Annual earnings in excess of $100,000 are realistic for independent claims adjusters. Staff adjusters who work for insurance carriers earn salaries ranging from $45,000 to $80,000+.
 
  • In catastrophe situations (e.g. after a Hurricane Harvey or Irma) the huge volume of claims causes a massive increase in the demand for adjusters. During these spikes, a good adjuster can earn more in a few months than he or she would normally earn in an entire year. But you have to be ready to go at the drop of a hat and prepare to work in an extremely challenging environment.
 
  • The industry is rapidly evolving. Employers are struggling to fill the vacuum from a generation of adjusters who are retiring out of the industry.
