How To Become A Pennsylvania Insurance Adjuster

Insurance Adjuster License Looking to advance your career in the insurance industry? Consider becoming a Pennsylvania insurance claims adjuster. Virtually all insurance companies use adjusters to stay operational and determine the outcomes of claims.

What Is An Insurance Claims Adjuster?

When a claim is filed, an insurance adjuster goes into the field and investigates the claim by examining sites, doing research and talking to witnesses. They determine if the insurance company is responsible for the claim and to what degree. Insurance companies depend on the knowledge and good judgment of claims adjusters.

What Does A Pennsylvania Insurance Claims Adjuster Do?

A Pennsylvania Insurance Claims Adjuster inspects property damage or personal injury claims in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, Erie, Reading, Scranton, Bethlehem, Lancaster, Levittown, Harrisburg, and other 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, an adjuster will:
  • 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
How To Become A Pennsylvania Insurance Adjuster

Technically, you are free to start adjusting claims in Pennsylvania without any special licensing or certification. That said, most insurance companies prefer to hire some with training or experience, so we recommend taking one of the "Designated Home State" courses below.
