CAT Adjuster, Catastrophe AdjusterWhy Veterans Are Perfect For CAT Adjusting

Veterans have put their lives on the line to serve our country. In their training and service vets have developed strong traits and characteristics that make them the ideal candidates for a rewarding career in catastrophic insurance adjusting.

What is CAT Adjusting?

When a catastrophic event (wildfire, hailstorm, flood, etc.) occurs, insurance agencies will deploy catastrophe adjusters to the affected region. These adjusters will perform inspections that estimate how much compensation the customers are entitled to under their policy. The adjuster will spend weeks to months in the region


Some of the benefits of a career in the CAT adjusting field include:

  • Self Employed – Catastrophe adjusters are contracted by insurance agencies. As independent contractors, they make their own hours and their own schedule.
  • High Earning Potential – CAT adjusters have a very high earning potential as they are paid per claim closed. The typical income ranges between $70k – $100k in 6-9 months during the storm season.
  • Vacation Time – Catastrophic insurance adjusters have plenty of time off to enjoy their hard earned cash as they tend to work during the 6-9 month storm season.
  • Helping People – CAT adjusters are able to help get compensation to people who are in need during a catastrophic crisis.

Why Vets Are Perfect For CAT Adjusting

In order to be successful in the field as a catastrophic insurance adjuster, it takes a certain type of person. CAT adjusting requires a strong work ethic. An adjuster must be hard-working, organized, self-motivated, and dedicated.

How to Become a CAT Adjuster
