Start A New Career In CAT Adjusting

There are many different reasons why you might want to start a new career. Whether you need more money, more independence, or just a change of scenery; you might want to consider catastrophe or CAT adjusting.

What Is a CAT Adjuster?

Insurance agencies and independent firms rely on catastrophic claims adjusters to assess the compensation to their customers after a catastrophic event. When a flood, hurricane, wildfire, etc. hits a region, CAT adjusters are deployed to the area in order to help handle the large amount of claims. They will typically spend weeks to months in the region performing inspections assessing how much money the customer should be compensated under their policy.

CAT Adjusting Benefits

Some of the benefits to CAT adjusting include:

  • High earning potential As a catastrophe adjuster is paid per claim closed, there is a very high ceiling for earning potential. A CAT adjuster will generally average between $70k – $100k a year.
  • Vacation Time – CAT adjusters typically work 6 – 9 months during the storm season. This leaves plenty of vacation time.
  • Helping people – When a catastrophic event hits, people are in desperate need of the compensation that the insurance adjusters are able to bring.

VAS or Veteran Adjusting School is the only catastrophe adjusting school that has 98% job placement and is VA approved for veteran tuition assistance under the 9/11 GI Bill ®. VAS has almost 20 insurance agency and independent firm partners that hir
