16 States that do NOT Require an Adjuster License

Did you know there are 16 states that do not require an adjuster license? If you are just getting started in insurance adjusting, these states limit your upfront investment and allow you to get started right away.

Just because these states don’t require you to be licensed doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get licenses elsewhere though. As an independent adjuster, if you even want to be considered for nationwide deployment, you need to start with a designated home state license (DHS) such as Texas or Florida. This will increase your credibility and knowledge base. You can find additional info on this in our blog post Top 10 States for Independent Insurance Adjusters to Get Licensed In.

If you are already an experienced pro or have a DHS license, these are a slam dunk to add to your deployments. You can expect a number of weather events, including hail and tornadoes, in states like Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
