Become a Minnesota Insurance Adjuster
Licensing Rules and Online State Exam Prep for Minnesota Claims Adjusters
AdjusterPro's Bottom-line: Residents must pass the state exam before licensure. Non-residents holding a license in their home state can obtain the Minnesota license reciprocally. Available lines of authority are Property and Casualty, Worker's Compensation, and Crop.

To become a licensed Minnesota insurance adjuster, individuals must:
- Be 18 years of age or more;
- Be competent and trustworthy;
- Not have been involved in any activity that would cause license removal or suspension for three years before application.

- Minnesota defines an adjuster as "a person who on behalf of an insurer or an insured, for compensation as an independent contractor or as an employee of such independent contractor, or as an employee of an insurer, or for a fee or commission, investigates and evaluates claims arising under insurance contracts and negotiates the settlement of such claims."
