National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ Public Adjuster Working Group to Meet June 26; Comments Sought on Unauthorized Practices

Jun 16, 2017


The National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ (“NAIC”) Public Adjuster Working Group will hold a conference call on Monday, June 26, 2017 (12:00 p.m. Eastern/11:00 a.m. Central/10:00 a.m. Mountain/9:00 a.m. Pacific) to discuss its proposed workstreams.  Those include:


  • Development of a consumer notice addressing the functions of public adjusters;
  • Development of a model bulletin addressing the unauthorized practice of public adjusting;
  • Development of legislative language to address a conflict of interest in which an individual serves as the contractor and public adjuster for the same claim; and
  • Coordination opportunities with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).


The Working Group advised that it is soliciting comments on these workstreams and is particularly interested in receiving copies of existing consumer notices/educational materials on the functions of public adjusters and state bulletins addressing the unauthorized practice of public adjusting.
