A Public Adjuster is someone who is licensed and advocates for a policyholder in appraising and negotiating an insurance claim.
Public Insurance Adjusters in many states are required to secure a Public Adjuster Surety Bond before they can receive licensure and practice in their perspective states. The bond guarantees that the adjuster will conduct business honestly while complying with each state's insurance statues.
Many states utilize the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) to process licenses requests for resident and non-resident public adjusters as well as other insurance agent licensing.
