Why be an independent insurance adjuster?

Are you looking for a new career choice? Learn why becoming an independent insurance adjuster could be a great career choice for you.

Deciding your career path is not an easy decision. You may be recently graduated from high school or college, in the middle of a career or job that is not working for you, facing layoffs, or in retirement.

Becoming an independent insurance adjuster is a great career for someone who wants to be an entrepreneur, have flexibility in their schedule, have a lucrative income, and travel. It’s a rewarding career where you can help people in a time of need as you grow in your expertise in the field.

As a licensed insurance adjusting school, we see many reasons why people pursue this career. But as with most schools, getting licensed is just the starting point. There is no shortcut to success, which is why we go beyond licensing to teach you what you need to know and give you the tools, resources, and ongoing support to reach your goals.

If you’re considering becoming an independent insurance adjuster, see if it could be a good fit.

Be Self Employed

Being an Independent Adjuster means you are essentially a contractor assisting an IA firm to handle claims. You are your own business working under a firm!

Great Pay

Also, depending on storm activity, most Independent Adjusters usually only work an average of 6-8 months out of the year.
