The Connecticut Insurance Department announced Monday the launch of a new online program that would make it easier and quicker for insurance companies to register their emergency adjusters with the state when a damaging storm occurs.
The department said the new program provides for “real-time registration” when companies need to bring in out-of-state adjusters to meet the needs of their customers in Connecticut.
“Carriers can quickly register large number of adjusters at no-cost and have them on the ground here in Connecticut to begin assessing damage as soon as possible,” Connecticut Insurance Commissioner Thomas B. Leonardi said.
Carriers can register a catastrophe adjuster who has either a license in another state or a minimum of two years adjusting experience. Once registered, the emergency adjusters are authorized to work in Connecticut for 120 days, a term that can be extended by the insurance commissioner if warranted.
The insurance department said it will activate the catastrophe registration program for specific storms and other catastrophic events.
Carriers can access the insurance department’s online registration system at: www.cidverifylicense.ct.gov/CAT/CATdefault.htm.
