How Do I Get Bonded?

What Is a Florida Public Adjuster Bond?

If you want to operate as a public adjuster in Florida, you need to get licensed with the state Chief Financial Officer’s Division of Insurance Agent and Agent Services. Obtaining a Florida public adjuster bond is one of the main licensing requirements.

The purpose of public adjuster bonds is to protect the interests of adjusters’ customers from unlawful actions. If you fail to follow the rules, you can face a claim on your bond. This, in turn, can serve as a compensation for affected parties.

Your Florida public adjuster bond functions like other surety bonds. It represents a contractual agreement between three parties. The principal is your public adjuster company. The Division of Insurance Agent and Agent Services is the obligee that requires you to get bonded. The surety is the entity that provides your bond.

Questions about Public Adjuster Bond in Florida

Who needs to obtain a Florida public adjuster bond?

Public adjusters in Florida who want to serve as representatives for clients in insurance claims need to be licensed with the Division of Insurance Agent and Agent Services. As a part of their licensing process, they need to obtain a bond.

The bond provides an extra layer of guarantee for your clients and for the licensing authority. It ensures you will adhere to the professional standards in serving your customers.

How much does a Florida public adjuster bond cost?

The bond amount that Florida public adjusters need to post is $50,000. Your bond price, however, is different. The bond premium is only a fraction of the total amount. If your overall finances are in good shape, you need to cover only 1%-3% of the bond amount. This means that you might have to pay only $500-$1,500 to get bonded.

Expected Premiums
Bond Type Surety Bond Amount Above 700 Between 650-699 Between 600-649 Below 599
Florida Public Adjuster Bond $50,000 $375-$750 $500-$1,500 $1,250-$2,500 $2,500-$5,000

How exactly is your bond premium calculated? When you apply with a surety, they examine your personal and business finances. The surety considers your personal credit score, business finances, and assets and liquidity. The goal is to assess the risk involved in bonding you. If you are seen as a low-risk applicant, you’re likely to get a lower bond premium.

You can consult our surety bond cost page to find out more details about how your bond price is set.

How are bond claims handled for public adjusters?

The purpose of your surety bond is to protect your customers. This means it does not function like insurance for your business. In case you engage in unlawful activities and this leads to negative results for another party, they can file a claim against your bond.

If the case against you is proven, you are liable to compensate the claimants. Because of the bonding, your surety will cover the costs at first. However, you need to reimburse it fully afterwards.

Aside from the financial harm, claims can damage your reputation too. After a proven claim, it can also be difficult to get bonded again.
