How Do I Get Bonded?

Louisiana Public Adjuster Bonds Explained

As per the requirements of the Louisiana Department of Insurance, public adjusters are required to obtain this a public adjuster bond before they can legally operate in the state.

Like other types of surety bonds, Louisiana public adjuster bonds are an agreement between three parties, in this case:

  • The Louisiana Department of Insurance (obligee)
  • The public adjuster (principal)
  • A surety bonds company (surety)

The obligee is the part that requires the bond, the principal is the side which furnishes the bond and the surety is the backer of the bond. In case of unlawful actions, the surety and the public adjuster have a joint responsibility to reimburse the affected party for any losses incurred due to those actions.
