Licensing Rules for Connecticut Claims Adjusters

AdjusterPro's Bottom-line: Connecticut residents can obtain their license by passing the Connecticut adjuster exam. Connecticut grants reciprocity to all other licensing states except for New York. New York residents with a New York adjuster license must take the Connecticut licensing exam in order to obtain the Connecticut adjuster license.


Adjuster License Requirements

To become a licensed Connecticut insurance adjuster, individuals must:

  • Be 18 years of age or more.
  • Be of good moral character.

NOTE: Connecticut defines a Casualty Claims Adjuster as, “Any person who or which acts as an adjuster of insurance claims, other than life, accident and health, and fire and extended in the general practice of law are exempted.”

NOTE: Connecticut defines an Adjuster as, "A person who investigates, negotiates and settles losses for an insurance carrier. They must establish the how, when, where and why during the investigation of the insured’s claim. They represent the insurance company and acting for the company in working on agreements as to the amount of a loss and the liability of the company in same. They must establish the worth and value of the claim in the evaluation and, ultimately, they must authorize payment, negotiate an agreement or reject the claim."
