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.
