Find Your New Career In CAT Adjusting

Wondering what job is the right one for you? Then you may want to consider a new career in CAT adjusting. Catastrophic insurance adjusters are a special type of adjuster that are independently contracted and deployed to catastrophic events (hurricane, wildfire, hailstorm, flood, etc.). They will spend weeks to months at a time in the affected region estimating how much compensation the insured customers are entitled to under their policy.


Since they are usually contracted by IA firms and insurance companies, catastrophic adjusters are their own bosses 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 hardworking, 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.
