CADO Admin
People often ask me how to become a flood adjuster. FEMA has specific requirements in place. They have stated in the Flood Claims Manual that adjusting flood losses requires “Specialized Knowledge”.

Insurance Adjuster Act

California Senate Bill 240

CADO Admin 0
SB 240, as amended, Dodd. Insurance Adjuster Act.

Existing law creates the Department of Insurance, headed by the Insurance Commissioner, and prescribes the department’s powers and duties. Existing law, the Insurance Adjuster Act, sets forth various requirements with respect to operation as an insurance adjuster in this state and prohibits a person from engaging in a business regulated by the act, or acting or assuming to act as, or representing themselves to be, an insurance adjuster unless the person is licensed under the act. Existing law also prohibits a person from falsely representing that the person is employed by a licensee. Existing law exempts a person from the requirements of the Insurance Adjuster Act if the person is employed exclusively and regularly by one employer, as specified, with which the person has an employer-employee relationship. If the commissioner declares an emergency situation, existing law authorizes a nonlicensed insurance adjuster to adjust claims if certain requirements are met, including that the nonlicensed insurance adjuster registers with the commissioner via a written letter naming the nonlicensed adjuster, identifying adjuster licenses held in other jurisdictions, and stating when the claims adjusting activity began in the emergency situation. Existing law requires an insurer to provide an insured with a written status report if the insurer assigns a 3rd or subsequent adjuster to be primarily responsible for a claim within a 6-month period.

OKLAHOMA DOI decides to police the entire country for license compliance

Old Wise Fox 2

OKLAHOMA DOI decides to police the entire country for license compliance.  Upon my recent submission for license renewal as a Non-Resident, the DOI rep Nicki has decided to question my standing with my home state of Nevada!  I am complete good standing with Nevada, and havre offered to provide a "Letter of Good Standing", which Nicki refused to accept. She is demanding my continuing education formal receipts. She refuses to accept any certificates issues by attending classes such as NFIP, Symbility, etc.  In a very rude 1970's condescending government attitude, she asked if she could just cancel my request, and keep the monies I've paid!  She said that she is just enforcing state statutes, and snottingly that I have 60 days to comply from her first response. REMEMBER, this was a Non Resident license.  I hope she can write estimates!!

Study: State insurance licensing reciprocity benefits everyone

A new study has found that the current system of licensing regulations for independent claims adjusters is causing more harm than help for the industry.

The study, entitled “Breaking Down Barriers” by Pacific Research Institute, found that the average claims adjuster holds between 10 and 12 different state licenses. This can set them back as much as $1,000 each. The study pointed out that these “costly, burdensome state requirements” make it more difficult for adjusters to operate across states, while driving up costs for consumers and limiting the opportunities for new adjusters.

At present, 34 states require independent adjusters to hold a license, the Association of Claims Professionals (ACP) reported.

From fire to floods, recent natural disasters highlight the need for uniform claims adjustor licensing

Source: The Hill

"As the nation continues to recover from the damage caused by hurricanes, floods and fires from coast to coast, we are reminded yet again that unforeseen, life-changing disasters can strike at any time. After the initial chaos subsides, it’s only natural that those affected would want to move quickly to start rebuilding their lives.


For many, the first step is a call to the insurance company, who should be able to resolve claims promptly, offering timely financial assistance when it’s needed most. But unfortunately, a complicated patchwork of state laws governing claims adjusters provides exactly the opposite: an inefficient, time-consuming, and expensive process that fails to serve the needs of consumers in the wake of a disaster."
