Who needs a public insurance adjuster bond?
In the State of California, any individual or business entity who aids an insured in negotiating the settlement of claims for loss or damage under an insurance policy or who advertises or solicits business as a public insurance adjuster is required to be licensed as a public insurance adjuster and obtain a $20,000 surety bond to be in compliance with Section 15033 of California Insurance Code.
What is the public insurance adjuster bond?
The California public insurance adjuster protects the party requesting the surety bond, the Obligee, against any financial losses as a result of poor financial choices, damages, unethical decisions, or a failure to adhere to state and local laws on the part of you, the Principal. By obtaining your bond, you are telling the Obligee that you can be trusted and that you stand by your business decisions.
The California public insurance adjuster bond is also known as the California public adjuster bond.
What else do I need to obtain or renew my license?
