Why do I need this bond?
Missouri public adjuster bonds serve as a guarantee of financial responsibility. This bond holds principals (adjusters) liable for financial losses up to the full bond amount if they engage in any fraudulent or prohibited activities. These prohibited acts are detailed in Chapter 325 of the Missouri Revised Statutes 1986. Specifically, this bond type ensures that public adjusters will account for all funds received in settlement losses or claims for holders of insurance policies within the provisions of Sections 325.010 through 325.055 of the Missouri Revised Statutes.
What’s the fine print?
Public adjuster bonds are required by the Missouri Department of Insurance Financial Institutions and Professional Registration. These bonds are continuous until canceled, and the surety can cancel the bond at any time upon giving the director of the department 30 days’ written notice.
The surety bond form for public adjuster bonds is also the bond form for public adjuster solicitor bonds. Be sure to check the appropriate box on the bond form.
