    I am new to California, am staying with a relative.  Philadelphia adjuster for 5 years, did not need a license.  Can someone please translate this CA license requirement passage.  What do I have to do to get a business address?  Right now I work out of my brothers office and manage his operation "unrelated", I would like to use that address as my base of operations and workplace for adjusting.  Does anyone know if this is a problem? If someone could share there experience that might help me get through the bureaucracy of it all.

    Residency: Pursuant to Section 14029(a) of the California Insurance Code, the business of each licensee must be operated under the active direction, control, charge, or management of the licensee, if the licensee is qualified, or the person who has qualified to act as the licensee's manager, if the licensee is not qualified. Although the qualified manager is not required to be a resident of California, they must meet the oversight requirements pursuant to section 14029(a) stated above.

    As a general rule, your brother's office or residence will suffice (in most cases). You will be required to verify a minimum of two years of experience before you are eligible to sit for the exam.

    Do you have a plan of action for working insurance claims within California? Do you have an opportunity for work? I say as much because some folks are not required to be licensed IE a staff adjuster for a carrier based in Ca, etc...

    Nevertheless, you should contact the California Department of Insurance for an exact course of action and give them the final say.


    Good luck to you!
