Staff Adjusters

Staff adjusters are salaried employees of the insurance company. Staff adjusters are not licensed but are registered by the Insurance Company. The staff adjuster registration is active for one year unless the Insurance Company terminates the registration. The Insurance company is required to update the registration list annually in March and is also required to file updates as they occur. The information displayed is current but can change from month to month.

In the event of a Georgia Emergency Management Authority (GEMA) declared disaster or catastrophe, the insurer will be required to register with the Department a list of non-licensed salaried staff adjusters and out of state licensees that will be handling claims relating to the catastrophe/disaster. After filing, Disaster entry permits will be assigned to each insurer. These entry permits will be assigned to each adjuster for a period not to exceed 60 days.

The Insurer's emergency adjuster filing must include information regarding its adjuster Coordinator. The filing must include the adjuster coordinator's name, address, e-mail address, and phone number.

In the event of a non-GEMA declared disaster, nonresident adjusters licensed in another state may enter Georgia for a period not to exceed 60 days. The adjuster must notify the Department prior to entry into this state. Such notification must include the adjuster's name, address, date of anticipated entry into this state and any other information that the Commissioner deems necessary to complete the filing. If the adjuster will be in this state for a period exceeding 60 days, the individual must apply for adjuster licensure.
