Becoming an insurance claims adjuster is the perfect opportunity to keep you in the industry with a new experience every day.

Profession Overview

Claims adjusters work alongside insurance companies when claims are submitted. These individuals are responsible for going on-site, or wherever is needed, to review damage to a property. In addition, there is a research component to this role. Claims adjusters will do all the work needed to find any important paperwork, facts, and other relevant information that will help finalize the situation. From talking to witnesses to gathering important documentation, the claims adjuster builds the file. Once put together, they review their findings then report back to the insurance company on how much the claim is worth based on the facts, claimant’s insurance policy, and all other important factors. On average, an adjuster can make just over $30 per hour, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  

Education and Licensing

Entry level claims adjusters can get into the field with just a high school diploma. However, for more advanced career paths, an associate or bachelor’s degree and/or experience in the insurance industry is asked for. When it comes to licensing, each state is different. By becoming a claims adjuster, you can work in a variety of fields from administrative and health, to the government.
