Pilot Offers the Best Opportunities for Catastrophe Adjusters

Posted on September 23, 2015

The world of catastrophe adjusting is a world of promise. From the moment you finish your certification through to your retirement, this can be a fulfilling career. Here’s a look at some of the opportunities for cat adjusters that anyone who enters the field can enjoy.

Immediate Opportunity to Work

Catastrophe adjusting is one of the few fields left that let people earn a decent income after just a short training. On Well Adjusted, Daniel Kerr juxtaposes the traditional path, four years of college that costs an average of $64,000 (at a public school) or $128,000 (at a private institution), with the training required of insurance adjusters. You could take all the courses you need, including your licensing course, a couple carrier-specific training programs and a few additional classes in just a couple of months. After you’re finished, you can immediately start earning money -- up to six figures a year, he notes.

Long-Term Stability

In today’s ever-changing job market, the field of catastrophe adjusting affords long-term stability. Although independent adjusters experience lulls between catastrophes, there will (unfortunately) always be disasters. There will never be a time when people aren’t filing insurance claims for the losses they suffer during a catastrophe.


Within adjusting, working as an independent catastrophe adjuster provides liberty. As an independent adjuster, you’ll be your own boss. Determine how much work you’d like to take on and enjoy being free from the oversight of a direct supervisor.
