Social distancing during the Covid-19 crisis has created disruption in many areas we might not have considered, including getting an adjuster license

Since adjuster licensing is what we do, we’ve been working hard over the past months to find pathways to licensing so people can continue moving forward toward becoming licensed insurance adjusters, and companies can continue providing licensed adjusters who are ready to settle insurance claims for the people who rely on them.

There are paths to licensure open right now, and more paths will likely be opening in the weeks to come. We will be updating this post as often as necessary to keep you up to date. Read on for the big picture as we see it right now.

A word about fingerprinting during Covid-19 

SILA (the Securities and Insurance Licensing Association) recommends that applicants having issues getting fingerprinted reach out to the applicable state Department of Insurance for their recommendation, and also look for third party vendors that may be open. Local police departments are an option as they are sometimes able to do fingerprinting.

States that currently have a path to licensure

As of June 1, 2020 the major exam providers PearsonVue, Prometric and PSI have opened up for testing in every state, with limited seating and Covid-19 precautions. When scheduling your exam, keep in mind that the first available appointment may be a few weeks away. You may want to schedule the exam before you’re actually ready to take it if that’s possible to ensure matching your readiness to pass the exam with your scheduled exam appointment.
