Washington Public Adjuster Bond

Washington Public Adjuster Bond

The Washington Office of the Insurance Commissioner requires public adjusters (individuals and business entities) to obtain a $5,000 Public Adjuster Bond before a license to perform as such in the insurance industry may be issued.

Jet Insurance Company provides the Public Adjuster Bond to act as a financial assurance to the Commissioner’s Office that the public adjuster will comply with all state license regulations. Suppose the public adjuster commits negligent, dishonest, or fraudulent conduct. In that case, the surety bond may be used as a form of restitution by any party that has suffered from financial damages.

Why Is the Public Insurance Adjuster Bond Required?

The Washington Office of the Commissioner of Insurance’s purpose is to protect the well-being of insurance consumers and oversee/manage the insurance industry. In order to do so, the Commissioner’s Office has laid out an extensive licensing process and regulations to follow for those in the insurance business, like public adjusters.

The Public Adjuster Bond is a required step within the licensing process to ensure that compensation will be available to any claimant that has suffered financial damages due to a license violation. For example, public adjusters act upon their customers to research and negotiate property and casualty insurance claims, so if the licensee fails to distribute funds from a claim to a policyholder within the mandated timeline, this is considered an act of negligence/fraud and is subject to a bond claim if the violation remains unresolved by the public adjuster in question. The surety bond may then be used to recompense the harmed claimant for their financial losses.
