Many people want to know why having an adjuster’s license in the state of Texas is considered so important for independent adjusters in the industry. The reality is there are quite a few reasons why an adjuster’s license in this state, in particular, is sometimes referred to as the “Holy Grail” in terms of licenses. At 2021 Training in Plano, TX our team of specialists and support staff understands just how important it can be to have access to the right training and resources when preparing to obtain your license as a claims adjuster in Texas.
As someone who has spent years working with individuals to prepare them for the challenges of starting their career as a claims adjuster, I can tell you that having a license in the state of Texas can be a huge advantage. Because Texas is widely recognized by other states throughout the country, every state that allows licensing through reciprocity accepts a Texas license as a way to start the process. In addition to this, the process of getting licensed in Texas is straightforward, especially with the right support. Finally, Texas is the biggest state in the union! This means that the chances of being dispatched within your home state can immediately increase thanks to how much area the Lone Star State covers.
CAT Adjusting Deployments Have Increased
Not many people are familiar with the term CAT adjusting, but it is an important part of becoming a claims adjuster. CAT is a shortened version of catastrophe. A CAT adjuster is a person who gets dispatched to a location after a major storm to assess a property and adjust claims for insured families and businesses in the region. In the industry, most of the claims adjusters who handle these types of deployments are independent.
Independent claims adjusters can potentially earn up to $ 250,000 a year through hard work and dedication. There are big and small events all year-long such as heavy storms, hail, and even tornados or hurricanes that can occur at any time. Experienced adjusters generally work as little, or as much, as they want. Adjusters can also enjoy the benefits of earning surprising levels of income in a shorter amount of time than other professions. The best way to reach this level of prestige quickly is to go through your training with eyes open, start with a license in the state of Texas, and perform well on your deployment to reach the top of future rosters.
Texas has become the center of many activities that focus on CAT adjusters. There are many CAT companies with headquarters or a strong presence in Texas. Best of all, you can live almost anywhere and still have a Texas license. Because Texas has a prestigious status among other states that promote reciprocal licensing, it’s easier to get a license in a different state where you might live or work if you have a Texas license.
