What are insurance claims adjusters and what do they do?
Insurance claims adjusters are paid very well to investigate insurance claims and determine how much an insurance company should pay for damages. They inspect property damage to homes, business, autos, planes, boats, etc., interview different people involved, consult with police, hospitals, and more, depending on the type of claim.
- Analyze the insurance policy to verify coverage
- Investigate the events and cause of the damage
- Evaluate the damages
- Negotiate the settlement
Basic duties of an adjuster:
Adjusters can work directly for insurance companies usually at an office building or out of their home, an independent adjusting firm traveling to storm locations, or as a public adjuster who represents the policyholder.
Texas requires adjusters to be licensed after attending a 40-hour class and passing an exam.
Many states recognize the high quality of the Texas Insurance Adjuster license. When you receive this license, you will be able to obtain a license in other states without taking another course or exam.
Some companies, charging up to $500, offer different training with computer-based testing. This testing is drawn from a very large bank of possible questions, often frustrating students who take (and fail) the exam several times. Our class is designed with different learning styles in mind and the exam is given on the last day of class so you do not have to go elsewhere. Students also have access to online practice tests to help reinforce the material.
With the All Lines' adjuster license, you will be licensed to investigate residential, commercial, automobile, aviation, farm/ranch, liability, inland and ocean marine, and workers' compensation claims as an independent adjuster, desk adjuster, or staff adjuster. Public adjusters are required to take a different class and exam.

- to travel?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these, adjusting insurance claims may be your new career.
An insurance adjuster income is limited only by how much and how well you work. It all starts here, attending an insurance adjuster training class. An insurance adjuster salary, usually for a desk adjuster, will depend on the company, type of claims, level of experience and knowledge, as well as if the adjuster is working as an employee or contractor. Starting salary: $25-$35 an hour. Insurance companies have a time constraint to complete claim investigations which frequently opens opportunity for overtime.
An independent adjuster working catastrophe claims from a hurricane, tornado, flood, etc., can easily make over $100,000 annually. As a beginning adjuster with no insurance or construction knowledge, I earned $70,000 in four months inspecting homes damaged by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma.
As with anything worthwhile, you have to make an investment. However, this investment is in you. Become an insurance adjuster.
Attend this class, receive the training, pass the exam, and earn your certification. Obtain your license and get to work. What you earn will be a direct reflection into how much you invest in yourself with further education about the type of claims you work and how well you manage your time and expenses.
Do not wait for a catastrophe or other disaster to strike before getting your license. After you receive your license, you can start applying for licenses in other states. When firms prepare to deploy adjusters to a storm site, they choose adjusters with licenses in those states first. Catastrophic insurance adjuster jobs are plentiful during the spring with tornado and hail damage as well as the summer and fall with hurricanes. Do not be left behind!
Due to limited seating, class material, and self-study requirements, all students must complete the registration process at least five days prior to class. Unfortunately, we cannot accept walk-ins, as you are required to complete 10 hours of self-study prior to class.
The Texas All-Lines insurance adjuster license is the most sought-after insurance adjuster license in the country. Out of all 50 states, only two states (California & New York) require a separate test to be licensed! Due to the solid training required for this license, all other states honor this license and provide reciprocity. Once you receive your Texas Adjuster license, you can obtain licenses in the other states by completing their application and paying the license fee. You do not need to attend other classes or take additional exams.

An independent adjuster (IA) can earn a substantial income investigating catastrophe (hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, etc.) claims. The more claims they work, the higher their income. However, catastrophes are not consistent, therefore an IA's income can be inconsistent.
Several factors affect how many claims an adjuster may receive:
- how soon they are deployed to a storm site (using over a dozen tiers, adjusters are ranked. IA firms deploy adjusters based on their ranking.)
- how effective they are processing claims
- how well they maintain their finances
This guidebook will focus on effectively preparing an IA to be more successful.
- increasing their ranking within the IA firm tier
- required and recommended equipment
- where to stay while deployed
- contacting claimants and scheduling inspections
- inspecting properties (aka scoping loss)
- preparing estimates to pass file examiner review
- maintaining finances while deployed
- ...and more
Based on student requests, our 4-day class covers two consecutive weekends (Saturday & Sunday), with the final exam on the 2nd Sunday. You must attend at least 27 of the classroom hours to qualify to take the exam. For available class dates, click here.
Texas Adjuster License Requirements
Since this is a professional license, there are certain requirements that need to be met before receiving the adjuster license and other requirements to maintain it. Operating as an insurance adjuster without an active adjuster license, or an emergency license, is against the law.
