What is an Insurance Claims Adjuster?

A claims adjuster is a representative of the insurance company. After a policyholder submits a claim, the adjuster comes in to investigate the loss. The loss can be anything from a major home flood or fire to a small window break or fender bender. They inspect homes, conduct interviews, and consult records. Also, they perform any number of duties to gather the details surrounding the reported event. The adjuster then interprets the customer’s insurance policy and determines coverage. Adjusters can negotiate the settlement on behalf of the insurance carrier. Also, they may authorize payments to the policyholder.

Do You Need a License to Become a Claims Adjuster?

Yes! While there are 16 states that still do not license claims adjusters, the majority of states do. Employers need adjusters who can work a multitude of claims in a variety of areas. You will give yourself the best chance for employment by obtaining your home state, or ‘designated home state’ license. Then get reciprocal licenses so you can work in other states as well.
