Experienced Insurance Claims Adjusters I NEED Your Help Please!?
Okay, so I am going to try and make this as short as possible but I have so many questions! First, I found out that I can take the state test to become an insurance claims adjuster at my local community college. They do not offer the classes there just the test. They told me that some people travel to the nearest location (which happens to be 3 hours away from me) to take the class in a classroom and then come there to take the test, while others get their own book and study and then come take the test. Which is what I plan to do because I cannot travel 3 hours away for classes. So, I am needing to know what book I need and where I would find it to become an "inside claims adjuster". I do not want to be an outside adjuster because I cannot travel being a single mother to a disabled child. Second, I am in a small town where I am on the border of 2 other states that are literally 10 mins away; the state I live in does not have many job openings for a claims adjuster but the next state does. So can I get licensed in KY, but work as an adjuster in TN? If not, what will I have to do to be able to work in a different state IF I have to? Thanks! And sorry so long!!

So you can live in KY and even work in KY but as... More
