California Public Adjuster Law

CE Course description

According to Investopedia, "a public adjuster is an insurance industry professional whose job is to assist the policyholder in making a claim from an insurance company. They represent the insured rather than the insurer.
Independent adjusters and company adjusters work for insurance companies. Therefore, they have the companies' interest in mind, rather than the policyholders, when working on a claim. The public adjuster, on the other hand, works in the policyholder's interest. They are hired if the policyholder finds the claim process too stressful and cumbersome or if they have doubts about the adjuster provided by the insurance company".

The California Insurance Code, Section 15007, states, in part, that a public insurance adjuster within the meaning of that chapter is:

  • "a person, who, for compensation, acts on behalf of or aids in any manner, an insured in negotiating for or effecting the settlement of a claim or claims for loss or damage under any policy of insurance covering real or personal property, or
  • any person who advertises, solicits business, or holds himself or herself out to the public as an adjuster of those claims; and
  • any person who, for compensation, investigates, settles, adjusts, advises, or assists an insured with reference to claims for those losses on behalf of any public insurance adjuster".
