Why A Career In CAT Adjusting?

Why A Career In CAT Adjusting?

Are you looking for a new career and wondering which path is right for you? Then you may want to consider CAT adjusting. Catastrophic insurance adjusters are a special type of adjuster that are contracted and deployed to catastrophic events (hurricane, wildfire, hail storm, flood, etc.). These adjusters typically spend weeks to months at a time in the affected region estimating how much compensation the insured customers are entitled to under their policy.


CAT adjusters are contracted by IA firms and insurance companies. This means that they are self-employed and make their own hours. However, successful adjusters typically work as much as possible as they are paid per claim that they close. This is also why there is such a very high earning potential in the CAT adjusting field. A good adjuster will generally earn $70k – $100k in 6 – 9 months during the storm season.

Characteristics to Succeed

In order to be able to excel in this career field, you must be hard working, organized, self-motivated, and dedicated. Although it is a high-paying career, you will have to work hard to earn it. Along with being very rewarding, CAT adjusting requires physical and mental endurance.

CAT  Adjuster Training

(VAS) Veteran Adjusting School is a catastrophe adjuster training school with a 98% job placement rate. Why is VAS so successful? 2 reasons:

  1. VAS is looking for commitment, not students. VAS instructors worked in the field and know what it takes to succeed. That is why they only accept students that are dedicated to succeed.
  2. VAS has over 20 insurance agency partners that trust so much in this training program that they hire VAS students right out of school.


CAT adjusting isn’t for everyone and classes are limited. Do you have what it takes?

A VAS certified graduate carries weight in the insurance adjusting world and is your first step into insurance adjusting.
