A typical day at work is coming into daily tasks in the properly claims office or in the field, handling member calls on claims issues, taking new claims losses, determining contract law and coverages, liability losses, contacting attorneys on settlements and liability losses, closing exiting claims, using Xactimate & Xactanalysis, PLR, CLR, & ICU databases, handling large losses, Additional Living Expense (ALE), and CAT deployment in major storms across the country.
I continue to learn and grow in the claims industry each and every day. I continue to volunteer for training on anything claims related to become a better and stronger adjuster.
I work with senior management on assigned projects, tasks, goal, and CAT issues on a monthly basis to assist my department.
My co-workers come to me for assistance and answers when manager and senior manager aren't around to assist with complex questions, member issues, and concerns.
Hardest part of the job is being on site at CAT's and telling the client their home is a total loss or any case where a denial comes into play and no coverage is afforded.
Most enjoyable part of the job and shaking the members hand face to face and tell them everything is going to be alright and working with the general contractors to get the members home back to better than pre loss condition.
