Filling out the paperwork

Filling out the paperwork was too damn challenging. I never had all of the news I wanted in order to simplify filling out the form properly. I did not realize the difference between me applying for a Texas All Lines license and the Texas Designated Home State License. Because I reside outside of Texas I had to apply for the Texas Designated Home State License. I really did read the application several time and I even phoned the Texas State Department of Insurance for help with filling out the form and it came back to me with errors. This is a story to help you lessen issues and hopefully get through the process quite simply.

 

 

Louisiana License

Louisiana was the second Gulf Coast State License I received. This license will pay itself off in one deployment.

There are 4 Big Firms. “The Big Three”

Everyone knows there are four big adjusting firms, but I applied to three of them. No rhyme or reason, I just did and that is it.

  1. Eberls out of Colorado
  2. E.A Renfroe out of Birmingham
  3. Worley out of Hammond, LA
  4. Pilot out of Mobile Al…maybe later…maybe not.

 

Deciding on a license: Texas Designated Home State

texas licenseOne state has the broadest reciprocity and that state is Texas. At the time that I started the process of studying and deciding on a home state, Texas was presented to me to be the most attractive. It seemed at that time no two people could tell you just home many state licenses you had reciprocity for but it has always been agreed that it is a lot. On thing I will resist is to throw out a number to confuse things more. But I will suggest speaking with the compliance officer of the firm(s) you work for and get it directly from them.

Deciding on Texas as my licensed state made sense. Illinois does not require a license to be an insurance adjuster which for me was good. It meant I did not have that hurdle to cross and I could focus on the Texas All Lines exam. By the way, a simple Property and Casualty license would have been good enough but I am apparently a glutton for punishment. The exam prep I used are several:

  • Exam Cram Property and Casualty guide:  It prepares you for terminology and theory on a broad level.
  • 360training dot com where I purchased the specific State of Texas Insurance Adjusting Pre-licensing course. Well worth it. In fact, it is why I passed and did not have to take the test several times.
  • I would say anything else may help but the two items did the trick for me so that is what I am sharing with readers.

This image shows Texas in a light blue color. All of the dark green states are the 16 states that do not require a license and I advise you designate Texas as your license state. You will benefit greately.

If you are asking if you have to move to Texas or at least have and address there, I suggest you ask around because to me that was never stated and if those are your obstacles you are never going to do anything anyway. Keep doing what you are doing. You might wash out in a week after all this time and effort.

 

Roadmap

Roadmap

 

The roadmap to being deployed by a  Catastrophe Adjusting Firms has been documented many times over.  This process involves  several steps that a determined individual must take in order to prepare for deployment. You will not be guaranteed a deployment unless you are able to control the weather or at least predict when and where a calamity will occur.  So, all emphasis should be  on what can be managed in order to prepare for independent work. Note: Independent means you do not work for the carrier. You are employed for a contract period with one of the adjusting firms (large or small) to work for the carrier (large or small) so you will need to abide by the code of ethics of those companies. But employment is at will.
