Re Adjuster Licensing

The state of Ohio only requires a license to become a public adjuster. Ohio residents interested in independent catastrophe adjusting should consider obtaining a non-resident Texas or Florida adjuster license. Catastrophe adjusters go from state-to-state adjusting claims. They earn a license in a specific state, like Florida or Texas, that is understood as their home state for the license. This license entitles them to practice in another state.

If you earn a Texas or Florida all-lines adjuster license, you increase your chance of impressing potential employers. You should also consider becoming an expert in Xactimate, the software used by most insurance claims adjusters.
