Why do I need this bond?

Washington public adjuster bonds ensure that principals (public adjusters) conduct business in accordance with the provisions of RCW 48.17.430. Specifically, the bond guarantees that principals account for all money and any settlement received to all persons requesting the services of the public adjuster.

If the principal violates the terms of his or her bond agreement and consumers are harmed as a result, the surety will pay for all damages up to the full bond amount. The principal must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.

What’s the fine print?

Public adjuster bonds in Washington remain in full force and virtue until canceled. These bonds remain valid for a standard 1-year term.
