How to become a Claims Adjuster

A high school diploma or its equivalent is needed to work as an entry-level claims adjuster. However, some employers occasionally have a preference for candidates who have an associate or bachelor's degree or some insurance-related work experience.

As far as licensing requirements go, each state has different licensing requirements. While some of the states have few requirements, others require candidates to have completed either a pre-licensing training or have received an acceptable score on a licensing examination. Claims adjusters are required to engage in continuing education to maintain their license.
