Emergency Adjuster License
The Emergency Adjuster License Application is not available at this time.
The Bureau of Licensing is currently monitoring the impending storm (Erika).
Please note, per Rule 69B-220.001, Insurance Companies and Adjusting Firms have seven (7) calendar days after adjusting work has begun to apply online for Emergency Adjusters. However, before sending your intended Emergency Adjusters into the affected area, contact the Bureau of Licensing via email at Sean.Fisher@MyFloridaCFO.com for approval, and include the following information:
- # of Estimated Claims, beyond normal claims numbers
- # of Estimated Emergency Licenses needed
- A list with the full names of the adjusters that will be requested for emergency licenses
- Justification for need (i.e. x number of claims more than normal in a month; why existing adjusters cannot absorb the emergency claims)
- If an Adjusting Firm, companies you represent
- Company's name and Appointing Entity Number
- NOTE: If you require assistance setting up the MyProfile account, please include this request within your email.
Once we receive this information and the need exists, the Bureau of Licensing will contact the Insurance Companies and Adjusting Firms to inform them that the portal for applying for Emergency Adjusters has been made available in the Appointing Entity's MyProfile account.
When the application is made available, you may apply for an Emergency Adjuster
License via MyProfile (only for Florida-licensed insurance companies, adjusting firms, general lines agents, and independent adjusters).
