Joseph Armato Public adjusters are an important part of the insurance industry. They advocate for policyholders appraising and negotiating with the insurance company regarding a recently filed claim. Public adjusters collect evidence, assess the damage to the property, review damage assessments completed by others, interview their clients, witnesses, and other interested parties, and complete the necessary reports to file the claim. If you believe that becoming a public adjuster is the right career path, there are a few steps you will need to fulfill.
When it comes to your education, at this time there are no educational requirements other than having a high school diploma or GED. One possible way to gain experience and knowledge to become an effective public adjuster is by earning a college degree, working in the insurance industry, or having a combination of both. Another way in which you can increase your knowledge base is by attending courses in claims adjusting through a community college. Some may even offer claims adjuster Associate’s Degrees.
In many states, you will have to become licensed to become a practicing public adjuster. Many states require you to complete an educational program, have experience in claims adjusting, and pass the licensing exam or a combination of the three before you can become licensed. Joe Armato graduated from the Sobelsohn School of Insurance in New York City before receiving his license. Shortly afterward he started his own business and helped thousands of people in the New York City area get back on their feet after they experienced a destructive personal event.
