In Hawaii a public adjuster must be licensed and provide a Hawaii public adjuster bond. The Revised Statutes of Hawaii define an adjuster as “any individual who: (A) Acts solely on behalf of either the insurer or the insured, as an independent contractor or as an employee of an independent contractor; and, (B) Investigates for, reports to, or adjusts for the individual’s principal relative to claims arising under insurance contracts (HRS 431:9). The Hawaii Department of Insurance regulates and licenses Hawaii public adjusters in the State. The bond requirement is $5,000 and is conditioned upon faithful compliance with all applicable laws, statutes, ordinances, rules or regulations, pertaining to the public adjuster privilege.
