What Should I Do To Become An Iowa Insurance Adjuster?
Get a Texas All-Lines Insurance Adjusters License with Texas as your “Designated Home State” for your license.
Most insurance adjusters get their Texas Insurance Adjuster License. Since there is no such thing as an Iowa Insurance Adjuster License, you should get a license in a state such as Texas that allows you to get a “Designated Home State” license if you are from a state that offers no licensing. It’s important that you are licensed. It is extremely difficult to get work if you do not carry a license even though Iowa doesn’t offer an Iowa Insurance Adjuster License.
As an insurance adjuster, you’ll want to be able to work in states other than your home state. Texas, for instance, is a large state that sees a lot of storm activity and is a common place for many adjusters to work. Texas does require an adjuster license to work in Texas. If you were from Louisiana, you’d get your Texas adjuster license through reciprocity after you’ve obtained a Louisiana Adjuster License, but with no adjuster license required in Colorado, how would you do that? Simply get a Texas All-Lines Adjuster License and select Texas as your “Designated Home State” on your application.
Why do we recommend a TEXAS Adjuster License?
It’s not just about getting a license, but being able to renew it as required. It’s easy to get CE credits for Texas. Most conferences you attend as an adjuster will always have their CE credits approved for Texas. Some companies recommend other states, such as Indiana. While you can get licensed quickly, not many places will give you CE credits, which makes it harder to renew your license. You’ll always find Texas on the list where CE courses are offered.
Texas is also recognized by many states for reciprocity. This makes it easy to get licensed in other states as long as you keep your Texas license current. Reciprocity means the other states recognize your Texas license and don’t require you to take their licensing exam.
