Also, how do you get called out for jobs? Thanks
How long is the average training, before being allowed to go on your own?
I would be interested in doing cat work, but when the catastrophe is over, just go home and do local work for the rest of the time.
As far as I can tell a Texas all lines license is preferable .
I live in north east Texas.
I need a game plan as for what to do first.
Do I need to get license before I talk to companies ?
What ,in your opinion are the best companies to look at. Considering my location.
I would like to stay flexible ,if possible and work for different companies.
Thanks for any input.
I am not happy with my current job. I feel like I am stuck in a future-less job. I am considering going to school to be a Catastrophe Insurance Adjuster. Is this a career path that is recession proof?
From my research so far, it appears that if you have a group health care coverage, it tends to be cheaper than if you have to buy the insurance yourself. For example, a family of 4 may pay as much as $700 a month or more for some decent coverage, but perhaps group coverage from your employer may cost you $400 or so. But if your employer does not offer it, are there any associations that offer health insurance to their members? Associations that anyone can join?
I am an insurance producer and want to get to know other aspects of the insurance industry. I was thinking of becoming a claims adjuster but i would first like to know more about the work itself. How flexible is it? Approx salary? Is it better to work for a company or be independent? What is the day of a claims adjuster like? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
Im looking into getting a degree to be some kind of inspector. I think it would be a decentely promising career from what ive read. If you are one, can you tell me about your job? thank you
How Many Hours Does an Adjuster Work?
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!!
I just obtained my Texas All Lines Adjuster license and got certified for inside adjusting with Pilot Cat / Liberty Mutual. My question is when will it be adjusting season in Texas? When is it going to speed up? All these job postings like All-State and Progressive have 50 job postings, yet they don't reply to any of them. When is it going to speed up? Anybody have any suggestions??
What is the process to become one, as far as training, experience, etc? If you are currently a severe weather claims adjustor, do you enjoy your job? Can you tell me about it?
My husband is a catastrophe claims adjuster and gets paid commission as an independent contractor. I understand business deductions, etc.. for him. Our 19 year old son (who is NOT a full time student and NOT a dependent) is working with my husband. How is the best way to pay him without getting all of us in trouble with taxes? We are providing room and board for him but need to pay him for his time as well. Would it be better for him to pay rent and buy his own food so he has deductions as an independent contractor also? I'm really confused and concerned about doing this the right way. Any help or suggestions will be greatly

I won't mention names here, but I've been working for an insurance company, and they have been having temps (data entry clerks) sign documents as the licensed adjusters with denial letters on claims, lien letters, and other insurance-related claim documentation.
I remember seeing that this was happening with a major bank on 60 minutes, and that they were prosecuted and investigated as a result. I even addressed my concerns with my superior, and was told that it is part of my job and not to ask questions. When I refused, I was terminated.
I'm wondering who I can call. I checked out Better Business Bureau's website, but I was hoping someone might know a more insurance-specific regulation agency that I can report this to. This is but one of several fraudulent actions the company has engaged in.
I know they specifically deal with claims from hurricane Irene, as well as daily catastrophes with home, commercial, and auto insurance.
Any tips are welcomed.
