Step One: Find your policy. Your policy is made up of coverage forms (usually 20 to 30 pages). The first page is called the “Declarations Page,” which details your coverage. If you don’t have a copy, ask your agent for one. If you have a federally backed mortgage and were required to purchase flood insurance, you most likely have coverage because your insurance payments will be deducted from your mortgage bill.

New adjusters, who previously found it difficult to break into the profession, are often hired in large numbers in these circumstances to help meet the sudden and overwhelming demand. In fact, catastrophe adjusters were already being deployed for Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, even before they made landfall. Then came Hurricane Maria followed by Hurricane Nate, which fortunately was weaker. Most of these events are considered a major catastrophe in their own right, but the fact that they occurred essentially back-to-back means that the insurance industry will feel their effect for a long time to come.

This may seem counter-intuitive – shouldn’t you get a license for the state where the hurricane hit? After all, that’s where the claims are! Unfortunately, it’s not that simple.

State insurance departments are working toward greater industry uniformity and have come to a consensus that adjusters must first become licensed in their home state. In some states, such as Florida or Indiana, the entire process, from taking our course to obtaining your actual license, can take as little as a week. In other states, such as Texas, it takes much longer, so start studying as soon as possible.
