  • Independent Claims Adjuster?

    My wife and I have signed up to start claims adjuster training at Mile High Adjusters in Denver, CO Jan. 7, 2012.

    The past couple days I have been reading everything I can find on this subject and it looks like we may have made a mistake. Sure, we can cancel and pay a small cancellation fee but what really irks me is I suckered at a sales pitch that I knew sounded too good to be true.

    The pitch is like this. You get your Texas all-lines license and then you when a large storm comes you can easily make $5000 to $6000 per week just measuring, photographing, and filling out a Xactimate form and e-mailing it to the insurance carrier. The pay per claim filled out would be $175 each to us the independent claims adjuster. That is based on a 60/40 split. 60% to us the claims adjuster. This sounds like easy money but I think I smell a RAT!

    Wow whee, who wouldn't want this cake job!

    Whoops not so fast.

    Am I correct to understand what I read to mean we will have to do hard negotiations with the insured, haggle over the payout to the insured, and interview many people?

    Anyone had real time experience where you can make $20,000 to $25,000 per month doing claims adjusting?


    Should we cut bait or continue fishing? i think I know already.
