Yes! In fact, the more licenses you have, the more marketable you are to our clients. Advances in technology and virtual work opportunities have increased the chances of handling claims in many states during one assignment. Therefore, you may work assignments based out of one state but be handling claims in many others. There are currently 34 states that require an independent adjuster license and we recommend you obtain all 34 or as many as possible to increase the assignments you can be considered for.
At a minimum, Eberl requires all catastrophe adjusters and daily adjusters to hold an independent adjuster license in their resident state. If your home state does not require an independent adjuster license, you will need to obtain a Designated Home State license in another licensing state, we suggest the Texas Designated Home State license for anyone that lives in a non-licensing state. Information for the Texas Designated Home State license through the Texas Department of Insurance website. Again, this is only for adjusters that live in a non-licensing state. Anyone living in a licensing state is required to obtain a resident adjuster license in that state.
Once the resident or designated home state (DHS) license is obtained, all additional adjuster licenses can be acquired through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) or Sircon. Specific application information for each state can be found on the state department of insurance website. Visit the NAIC Insurance Department State Map to select the state you wish to find additional application information.
Our team has also created an Adjuster Licensing Workbook to further assist with application questions and general licensing information. The workbook can easily be accessed once you are logged into your Eberl profile under the Work Resources section or you can contact our team at email@example.com and we will be happy to send you a copy.
In addition, CATI offers Pre-License courses that can help ensure you pass needed exams.
