Are you interested in becoming a Claims Adjuster, but don't know where to start? LSBDC at ULM has the perfect workshop for you. But first, what is a Claims Adjuster? A Claims Adjuster investigates insurance claims by interviewing the claimant and witnesses, consulting police and hospital records, and inspecting property damage to determine the extent of the company's liability. In the United States, a claims adjuster's duties typically extend to include the following elements: *Verify an insurance policy exists for the insured person and/or property. In general, these are written by the policy-holding insurance company. *Risk(s) of loss(es), or damages to property, culminating in the loss of property and or bodily injury. *After completing the above investigations, evaluate the covered injuries and/or damages that have been determined according to the coverage grants. *Negotiate a settlement according to the applicable law(s), and identify coverages for which the insured is covered, following best insurance practices. If becoming a Claims Adjuster seems like a career path that might interest you, please register for our workshop! Ms. Gasior will speak on how to become a licensed claims adjuster and Mr. Matthews will give an industry perspective for claims adjusters, i.e. current salary, duties and responsibilities, requirements needed to work in the field.
Speaker(s): Lorie Gasior, Insurance Manager of the Office of Licensing; Dwon Matthews CEO of 1st Procyon Consulting, Inc.
