Start A New Career As A CAT Adjuster

Do you want to be your own boss and make your own hours? Do you want to work in an industry where you can earn up to 6 figures in 6 months? Then you might want to look into a career in CAT adjusting.

What is CAT Adjusting?

When a catastrophic event (hurricane, flood, hailstorm, etc.) hits a region, insurance agencies and independent firms will deploy catastrophe or CAT adjusters to the affected area. These adjusters are independent contractors that perform inspections on the houses of the insurance customers assessing how much compensation they are entitled to under their policy. CAT adjusters will spend weeks to months at a time in the region getting the insurance customers the money they need to rebuild.

Some of the benefits to catastrophe adjusting include:

  • High earning potential – CAT adjusters are paid per claim closed. This means that hard working adjusters have a very high earning potential
  • Recession proof – Nature doesn’t take a break. When it comes to storms and catastrophic insurance adjusting, they are always in demand.
  • Vacation time – CAT adjusters will generally only work 6 – 9 months during the storm season. This leaves them plenty of time to enjoy their vacation.
  • Helping people – Catastrophic storms leave many people in a desperate need to pick up the pieces. Catastrophic insurance adjusters are able to help people put their lives back together.

Adjusting School With Job Placement

Veteran Adjusting School or VAS is a catastrophic insurance adjusting school that has built relationships with insurance agencies and independent firms to hire their students right out of school. In fact, VAS has over 95% job placement rate for their students. Why is VAS able to form these relationships? Three major reasons:

  1. The curriculum at VAS is extremely comprehensive and provides some of the most interactive training available for the industry.
  2. The school provides mentorship from experienced adjusters to help them fully understand the industry. In fact, the mentoring continues beyond the school into the field. VAS is more than a school, it’s a community.  
  3. Working in the CAT adjusting industry is not easy and requires certain characteristics to succeed. That is why VAS only accepts students that are hard-working, dedicated, self-motivated, and organized. VAS is looking for commitment, not students.

CAT adjusting isn’t for everyone. Do you have what it takes?
