Insurance Claims Adjusters

Is it 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:

It Requires Skills

The hard skills and qualifications necessary to become an adjuster are relatively simple. You need to be at least 18 years old. Also, hold a valid driver’s license, be a bonafide resident of your state. But it’s the soft qualities that set great adjusters apart. It requires self-discipline, an excellent worth ethic, and great communication skills.

It is Rewarding

Claims adjusting is a challenging but truly rewarding career. The pay is certainly good and helping people get back on their feet after a loss is a deeply satisfying line of work.

The Job is Always in Demand

Insurance adjusters are in demand in any economy since claims remain steady regardless of economic factors. When it comes to insurance adjuster salaries, annual earnings of $100,000 are realistic for independent claims adjusters. Staff adjusters who work directly for insurance carriers earn salaries ranging from $45,000 to $80,000 or more..

The Challenge and Opportunity of Catastrophes

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 be prepared to work in an extremely challenging environment.

The Future is Bright

The industry is rapidly evolving, and employers are struggling to fill the vacuum from a generation of adjusters who are retiring out of the industry.
