How much money does an insurance claims adjuster make?

As an adjuster, there are typically two types of compensation:

Fee schedule - Each insurance company has their own fee schedule, but most pay on average of $ 250-$550 per claim.  The average adjuster usually can handle between 3-5 claims per day, while the more efficient adjusters can handle more.  You will typically be paid on a fee schedule during the initial 2-3 months on a Catastrophe assignment.

Daily Rate - Each insurance company has their own daily rate schedule, most pay around $500/ day or more .  One of the great things about being a Catastrophe Adjuster is that you can work whenever you want to work.  Some adjusters work during the fall, while others work only in the summer.  Some choose to work 3-4 months a year, while others work 4-6 months.  Some choose to work year round also.


Is there much of a demand for adjusters?

The demand for available adjusters has never been greater.  The largest demand usually occurs after a large catastrophic event such as a Hurricane.  However, that demand is usually continuous due to isolated Hailstorms, Tornados, Floods and other weather related events.  Another option is to work Daily claims.  Daily claims are claims that you work in your local area.
