Why do I need this bond?
Public adjusters in Iowa are required to submit a $20,000 as part of the licensing process.
This bond ensures consumers that public adjusters work according to Iowa Administrative Code Section 191-55.10(1). Prohibited acts under this bond include, but are not limited to:
- Knowingly making any oral or written misrepresentations or statements that are false or maliciously critical to injure any person engaged in the business of insurance
- Charging fees on a client’s settlement that were not originally agreed upon in the contract
- Representing or acting as a company adjuster on the same claim
- Not ensuring that all contracts for the public adjuster’s services are in writing and set forth all terms and conditions of the engagement
If the principal (public adjuster) fails to work according to the state’s regulations, a claim can be made against the bond to recover losses.
What’s the fine print?
This bond must remain in effect during the term of the license. If the surety chooses to terminate the bond early, 30 days’ notice prior to cancellation is required to be given to the obligee. The notice must be submitted in writing and filed with the Division.
