CAT Adjuster, Catastrophe AdjusterFinding The Right Career For You

Are you wondering what career will be the right fit for you? You may want to consider the catastrophe adjusting field. A catastrophic insurance adjuster is a unique type of adjuster that is independently contracted and deployed to catastrophic events (hurricane, wildfire, hail storm, flood, etc.). They perform inspections for insurance agencies in order to estimate how much compensation the insured policyholder is entitled to based on the damages and policy. The catastrophe adjuster will spend weeks to months in the region as they perform their inspections.


Catastrophe adjusters can make their own hours as they are contracted out by IA firms and insurance companies giving them freedom and flexibility. However, successful adjusters typically work as much as possible as they are paid by each claim that they close. This is also why there is such a very high earning potential in the CAT adjusting field. A hard-working adjuster will generally average$70k – $100k in 6 – 9 months during the storm season.

Characteristics to Succeed

Hard work, organization, self-motivation, and dedication are the traits that are necessary in order to be able to excel in this career field. Although it is a rewarding career, you will have to earn it through hard work. Along with being very rewarding, CAT adjusting requires these attributes to succeed.
