Why do I need this bond?
Hawaii Revised Statutes § 431:9-223 require public adjusters to be bonded in an amount of $10,000 as part of the licensing process. The bond is issued in favor of the state and guarantees that the principal–the adjuster–will abide by all rules and regulations established by Hawaii’s revised statutes.
If any entity is harmed due to the adjuster’s failure to comply with state rules and regulations, a claim may be filed against the bond. At this point, the surety may pay out up to the full amount of the bond to settle the claim. It then becomes the adjuster’s responsibility to reimburse the surety for all money paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Hawaii public adjuster bonds are issued for 1-year terms and must be renewed annually for as long as the individual wishes to keep their license active. However, the surety may cancel the bond for any reason by providing the Licensing Branch with 60 days’ advance notice.
