8 Replies and 5132 Views What to do when the insured is deceased or divorced  5132  8 Started by  Leland I think death and divorce are common issues that rarely get covered in training. Adjusters learn what to do by trial and error, or if they are lucky, a knowledgeable supervisor tells them what to do.  Scenario 1.: The adjuster is handling a claim for Mr. John Smith and speaking with  a Mr. John Smith, who he presumes to be the insured. The adjuster gets a call from Sally Smith, who just returned from a deployment in Iraq. She says the house is hers, because she inherited it from her...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
'Many homeowners who got slammed by Superstorm Sandy are finding that their flood insurance checks are nowhere near large enough to cover repairs. Consumer advocates put some of the blame on errors by the multitude of adjusters who were hired in a hurry after the disaster. They say policyholders are being shortchanged — sometimes by tens of thousands of dollars — because of some adjusters' overreliance on computer programs, rather than construction know-how, to estimate rebuilding ...
