In Texas a public adjuster must be licensed and provide a Texas public adjuster bond. The Texas Department of Insurance defines public insurance adjuster as “any person who for compensation acts on behalf of an insured in negotiating for or effecting the settlement of a claim or claims for loss or damage under any policy of insurance covering real or personal property; or on behalf of any other Public Insurance Adjuster, investigates, settles, or adjusts or advises or assists an insured with a claim or claims for loss or damage under any policy of insurance covering real or personal property; or a person who advertises, solicits business, or holds himself or herself out to the public as an adjuster of claims for loss or damage under any policy of insurance covering real or personal property”. The $10,000 Texas Public Insurance Adjuster Bond is written in favor of the state and guarantees that the Texas public adjuster will abide by the provisions of the public adjuster laws TIC § 4102.001, and abide by all rules and regulations of the Commissioner of Insurance.
