Alaska Independent Adjuster Licensing Information

Alaska Independent Adjuster Licensing Information

Independent Adjuster
An independent adjuster represents the interests of the insurer.

You need an independent adjuster license to adjust claims on behalf of an insurer that is not your employer.

Reciprocal Nonresident License
You are required to hold an independent adjuster license in your home state to qualify for a reciprocal license.

If your home state does not offer an independent adjuster authority, you will need to pass the Alaska Adjuster exam, and Alaska will be your designated home state.

(the above is from the state's website.

Unlicensed Adjuster Single Loss or Catastrophe

Does Alaska have any special provisions that apply to adjusters who may need to only adjust
a single loss or adjust catastrophe losses?

Yes. A nonresident independent adjuster, who is not Alaska-licensed but who is licensed and in
good standing in his or her home state may act as an adjuster and adjust a single loss in this state
during a calendar year, or may act as an adjuster and adjust losses arising out of a catastrophe
(which is declared by the director) if, within 10 days after the start of the investigation or
adjustment, the nonresident adjuster advises the director in writing of the adjustment (AS
21.27.860(a)).

An unlicensed adjuster is required to comply with the Unfair Claims Trades Practices
Regulations.
