How much money does an insurance claims adjuster make?

As an adjuster, there are typically two types of compensation:


Fee schedule – Each insurance company has their own fee schedule, but most pay on average of $400-$600 per claim.  The average adjuster usually can handle between 3-5 claims per day, while the more efficient adjusters can handle more.  You will typically be paid on a fee schedule during the initial 2-3 months on a Catastrophe assignment.


Daily Rate – Each insurance company has their own daily rate schedule, most pay around $600/day.  One of the great things about being a Catastrophe Adjuster is that you can work whenever you want to work.  Some adjusters work during the fall, while others work only in the summer.  Some choose to work 3-4 months a year, while others work 4-6 months.  Some choose to work year round also.
