Non-Resident Independent Adjuster Licensing Requirements and Fees

IC 27-1-28 - Independent Adjuster Licensing

An Independent Adjuster works on a contract basis for an insurance carrier doing direct adjudications of claims. Indiana does not require licensure for staff adjusters. An Independent Adjuster license is effective for two (2) years, expiring on the last day of the agent's birth month, unless probated, suspended, revoked, or refused.

Non-resident Independent Adjusters can be licensed in Indiana provided:

  1. The individual is currently licensed in good standing as an Independent Adjuster in the individual's home state or Designated Home State (DHS);
  2. The individual has submitted the proper application for licensure and the non-resident application fee of ninety dollars ($90); and
  3. The individual's home state or DHS awards non-resident Independent Adjuster licenses to residents of Indiana on the same basis.

Indiana will verify an Independent Adjuster's licensure status in another state through an appropriate data base, including the insurance producer data base maintained by the NAIC or an affiliate or a subsidiary of the NAIC.

To maintain a valid non-resident Independent Adjuster license, the Independent Adjuster must maintain a valid resident Independent Adjuster license in the Independent Adjuster's home state or Designated Home State (DHS), and the Independent Adjuster's home state or DHS must award non-resident Independent Adjuster licenses to residents of Indiana on the same basis.

If an Independent Adjuster's home state or DHS license terminates due to the issuance of a new resident Independent Adjuster license in a new home state or DHS, the Independent Adjuster shall, not more than thirty (30) days after the Independent Adjuster's home state or DHS license termination date, provide notice of the termination to the Commissioner. The notice must specify the Independent Adjuster's previous home state address and new home state address.
