Minnesota Public Adjuster Bond

Bond Penalty: $10,000

A Minnesota public adjuster bond is required from both resident and non-resident insurance adjusters. The statutes authorize licensing of public, catastrophe, crop hail and independent adjusters. It is important to understand the distinction as application and surety bond requirements are different. Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Section 72B.04, the public adjuster bond must guarantee multiple obligations.

  • The surety bond must secure the licensee's compliance with terms of the insurance laws and any other legal obligations arising out of the licensee's conduct as a public adjuster.
  • Must guarantee payment to any person entitled thereto of any amounts received by the Principal or to protect any person (other than a partner or associate of the licensee) from loss resulting from fraud, dishonesty, forgery or theft in connection with the Principal's duties.

The Minnesota public adjuster bond must be written in the amount of ten thousand dollars ($10,000), be issued and countersigned by and insurance company and producer licensed to do business in the state. The Commissioner of Commerce and any person injured as a result of a licensee's misconduct or malpractice has a right of action against the surety bond for losses sustained by the injured party.
