Why do I need this bond?
The Texas Department of Insurance requires public insurance adjusters to post $10,000 surety bonds prior to receiving a license to handle claims.
Insurance adjuster surety bonds guarantee principals in Texas will conduct business as a public claims adjuster in accordance with the Texas Insurance Code. If the principal fails to conduct business in accordance with the law, the bond protects harmed parties from financial loss up to the full amount of the bond.
What’s the fine print?
Public adjuster bonds are effective until canceled and it is the responsibility of the adjuster to renew their Texas license annually for as long as they wish to remain licensed. However, the surety may cancel the bond at any time by giving written notice to the Texas Department of Insurance 30 days prior to the proposed cancellation date.
