This is what Loss Assessors and Loss Adjusters do. The main difference is that Loss Assessors represent the person or a group making the claim and Loss Adjusters are appointed by the insurer.

There are different types of adjusters, including insurer adjusters, public adjusters, and independent insurers. A license is required in order to become an adjuster.

As an impartial party in the claims process, the insurer will appoint a Loss Adjuster to establish whether the damage is covered by the insurance policy on behalf of the insurer.

For Kansas residents who want to become a licensed independent adjuster, we recommend obtaining a nonresident designated home state (DHS) license from Florida. A DHS license is required by most employers and also enables you to apply for reciprocal licensing privileges.
