Adjuster Licensing Requirements and Staff Adjusters
VERMONT DEPARTMENT OF FINANCIAL REGULATION
INSURANCE DIVISION BULLETIN 172
ADJUSTER LICENSING REQUIREMENTS AND STAFF ADJUSTERS
The Department has received a number of inquiries from insurers asking if Vermont law provides an exception to the adjuster licensing requirement if the individual adjusting is a staff adjuster of the insurer. The answer is no, there is no exception for the adjuster licensing requirement, unless the insurer is a Vermont domestic fire or casualty company. See Title 8 V.S.A. § 4791(3).
Insurers should review their licensing protocols to ensure their adjusters handling Vermont claims are properly licensed. For information about how to obtain a license, go to www.vermontinsuranceagent.info
