CAT or catastrophe adjusters are a special breed. Although they can gross between $70,000 – $100,000 in 6 – 8 months, it is not something just anyone can handle. In order to be a successful CAT adjuster, you must be organized, hard-working, dedicated, and self-motivated.

CAT adjusters are independently contracted by IA Firms and Insurance Companies and make their own hours. This means that you must have a high level of dedication to close claims and accurately portray the professionalism of the agencies you represent.

What is Catastrophe Adjusting?

When a natural disaster occurs (hurricane, hail storm, wildfire, etc.),  insurance agencies send out catastrophe adjusters to estimate how much compensation the insured customer is entitled to under their policy. CAT adjusters are able to help these people put their lives back together after such a tragic event by providing them the money they so desperately need.

In a large scale natural disaster, like the recent wildfire in Canada, a catastrophe adjuster will go out on a deployment to assess the damages in the affected area. A CAT adjuster will be generally be paid per claim closed. This means that the earning potential can be very high.
