How To Earn Your Ohio Insurance Adjuster License
Interested in getting into the insurance business in Ohio, but don't see yourself as a sales person? If so, then a career as an insurance claims adjuster may be a good fit for you. Insurance adjusters meet a vital need for an insurance company, and the best ones can enjoy high salaries and job security. What Is An Insurance Claims Adjuster?
Insurance claims adjusters determine if an insurance claim is valid and what it is worth. Your job is to investigate the event that has triggered the claim and find out how accurate the claimant's contention is. Ultimately, you decide if the claim is valid and how much your company should pay.What Does An Ohio Claims Adjuster Do?
An Ohio Insurance Claims Adjuster inspects property damage or personal injury claims in Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron, Dayton, Parma, Canton, Youngstown, and other Ohio cities to determine how much the insurance company should pay for the loss. They might inspect a home, a business, or a vehicle to determine how much the insurance company should pay out.
Though the process for reviewing a home versus a car claim may very somewhat, to determine the amount of payout, an Adjuster might interview the claimant and/or witnesses, inspect the damaged property, do additional research such as look at photos, police reports, or doctor/hospital records, evaluate damage, ascertain payout amount, and communicate with the insurance agent and/or client. Typically, adjusters will:
How Do I Become An Ohio Insurance Claims Adjuster?
- Verify an insurance policy exists for the insured person and/or property
- Identify coverages for which the insured is covered
- Evaluate the covered injuries and/or damages
- Complete applicable paperwork
- Negotiate a settlement according to the applicable laws
Unlike most states, Ohio does not license adjusters and does not have an Ohio Adjusters exam. However, since most employers will want anyone they hire to have an adjuster license before they can work, there is a solution.
How do you do this? You may think that you need a non-resident adjuster license, but going that route will limit your ability to work in other, including neighboring, states. Instead, we recommend Ohio residents wanting to become a licensed independent adjuster obtain a Designated Home State (DHS) License from either Florida or Texas. Having a DHS license is helpful because it shows potential employers that you have taken advanced education and passed an exam - plus it also presents the easiest path to getting a reciprocal license to work in other states.
Our TX and FL online courses provide all the study materials you need, and even includes the state test so there is no travel required. If you are willing to put in the time, our courses give you a great chance of passing the exam right out of the gate.
