What Is a North Carolina Public Adjuster Bond

If you’re considering to start a public adjuster business in North Carolina, you will need to undergo a rigorous licensing procedure with the state Department of Insurance. Among the criteria you have to meet is to obtain a public adjuster bond. It is necessary for obtaining your NC public adjuster license.

The required bond is a guarantee for your legal compliance. It functions like a safety net for your customers and the state in which you operate. If you fail to follow the law, the bond can be used to ensure a fair compensation to parties that suffer damages caused by your actions.

This North Carolina surety bond works like the rest of bonds. It represents a contractual agreement between three entities. Your public adjuster business is the principal that needs the bond. The NC Department of Insurance is the obligee that imposes the requirement. The surety backs your business and provides you with the bond.

Questions about Public Adjuster Bond in North Carolina

When is this bond necessary?

The North Carolina Department of Insurance requires all public adjusters who want to operate on the territory of the state to obtain a license. This entails posting a $20,000 surety bond.

The main function of the bond requirement is to ensure you will comply with all applicable rules, including the ones set in Article 33A, Chapter 58 of the North Carolina Statutes.

What is the surety bond cost?

Posting a $20,000 bond is one of the prerequisites you need to meet to obtain your NC license. The surety bond cost you will end up paying is a fraction of this bond amount. It is referred to as the bond premium. Applicants with stable finances typically get rates in the range of 1% to 5%.

How does the bond formation work? Your surety needs to examine your personal credit score, business financials, liquidity and assets, and any other relevant factors such as your business know how. On their basis, it determines how much risk your application poses. The more solid your profile is, the smaller your bond premium is likely to be.

What if I get a claim against my surety bond?

If you act unlawfully or unethically, you may get a claim against your public adjuster bond. This is how the bond protects your customers and the state against fraudulent and illegal actions on your side.

The sum that claimants can seek is up to $20,000, which is the bond amount you have posted. The surety may cover the claim at first. However, it is your liability to repay all costs soon after. This means that bond claims are ultimately your responsibility, so they can mean serious trouble. It’s best to stay away from situations that can lead to them.
