Texas Claims Adjuster
One of the most frequently asked questions we get is about the “Texas” license. Why is it important? How is it important? Do I really need one? What if I already have a license from another state? What do I have to do to get one? And where is the best place to get a Texas license. Etc.
In the beginning when the only Insurance available was for Fire, Texas saw the bigger picture and began work on an all encompassing set of guidelines. The state legislature’s authorization for the Board of Insurance Commissioners became effective April 18, 1876. This resulted in ‘THE’ book on Insurance!! They did such a great job that was so comprehensive, that most of the other states adopted it. Today ,over 30 states accept the Texas license via reciprocity. This means that having just this one license, an adjuster can work claims virtually nationwide. So even if you already have a license from another state, you will still want a Texas license.
