I am writing to urge you to cosponsor H.R. 4037, the Claims Licensing Advancement for Interstate Matters (CLAIM) Act. I strongly support Congressional efforts to help bring uniformity and reciprocity to the adjuster licensing standards in the United States, much like insurance agents and brokers. The CLAIM Act would do just that. Under the current regime, each adjuster is registered in his or her home state if that state requires a license. In order to adjust claims in other states, the adjuster must obtain additional licenses and comply with each state’s unique rules, causing adjusters to invest significant time and resources on licensing issues and, as a result, not adjusting claims for customers. Many adjusters may maintain 10 or more licenses, only increasing the red tape exponentially and frustrating adjusters' ability to serve consumers. The CLAIM Act will help policyholders experience more streamlined, affordable, and accurate adjusting of their property casualty, workers compensation, and other claims. Additionally, the CLAIM Act would provide much-needed certainty during times of natural and other disasters, a time when customers need help the most. The legislation accomplishes this goal by urging the states to adopt uniform and reciprocal adjuster licensing requirements, reducing barriers to entry and expediting claims processing. The legislation also extends the license terms of active duty service members, so that our nation's military can serve without worry that they will lose their livelihood upon return from their service. Several years ago, Congress adopted laws to help insurance “producers” (agents or brokers) more easily navigate the state-based licensing regime. The CLAIM Act would do the same for adjusters, the customers’ primary contact when filing an insurance claim. Thank you again for considering our request that you cosponsor this important legislation. We look forward to working with you to support its favorable consideration.
