Adjusters may bill based on the current NFIP Adjuster Fee Schedule:
• Current Adjuster Fee Schedule effective August 24, 2017
(CADO note, the May 2020 Manual refers you to "Appendix A" but the link to the fee schedule returns a page not found so we have added the fee schedule as a download below.)
• For ICC claims, use the ICC fee schedule effective September 1, 2004 (See Appendix B of the May 2020 Manual) CADO Note: the Appendix B link in the Claims Manual returns a page not found on the FEMA website, we are working to update the information and will provide it here once we have it.
