After successfully completing the AE21 Online Texas All-Lines Adjuster Pre-Licensing Course and receiving your “Certificate of Completion”, you will do the following:
- Secure your electronic fingerprints. Follow the step by step instructions for “Electronic Fingerprinting” listed on page 14 of 14 of the FIN506 application.
- Complete the License Application (Individual) form. Form FIN506.
- Mail your completed application, FAST Pass receipt, photocopy of the AE21 Certificate of Completion and a check for $50 to TDI.
Non-residents who hold a current insurance license in good standing in the applicant’s state of residence may apply by reciprocity and are exempt from the fingerprint requirements. (See Part VII – Background Information and Fingerprints on page 10 of 14 in the license application). Non-residents may apply to TDI by submitting:
- Completed TDI Agent/Adjuster License Application (Individual) form FIN506 or the Uniform non-resident application;
- Application fee;
- A letter of certification obtained from their home state department of insurance or a National Producer Database (PDB) printout.
NOTE: Applicants domiciled in states that require resident adjusters to be licensed in their home state (CT, LA, NC, OK, etc) can only receive a Texas adjuster’s license via reciprocity. Accordingly, applicants must secure their home state license prior to applying for a Texas adjusters license.
Yes; by fulfilling the same requirements as a Texas resident adjuster. Note on the Adjuster License Application within Part I; you would check the box for “Adjuster–All Lines Designated Home State Texas” and complete Part II (#3), “Nonresident Adjuster Designated Home State Texas Applicants Only” on page 4 of 14 of the FIN506 application.
NOTE: By designating Texas as the home state, applicants are subject to Texas license compliance standards including fingerprinting and continuing education requirements
Yes; fingerprints are required for non-residents as well. Please note however that the process for securing non-resident fingerprints is different than it is for Texas residents. IMPORTANT!... Electronic fingerprinting is NOT accepted for non-residents. Follow the step-by-step process outlined in the “Exception to Electronic Fingerprinting” information listed on page 14 of 14 of the FIN506 license application.
There are two (See Part II #2 & 3 listed on page 4 or 14 of the FIN506 license application):
- If you are a non-resident of a reciprocal state and hold an adjuster’s license that is in good standing;
- If you hold a CPCU designation or Associate in Claims (AIC) certification.
Reciprocity, in the world of adjuster licensing, is an agreement between states where an adjuster with a license in their home state can get a license in another state without being required to take that state’s exam or a licensing course. The adjuster will just need to complete an application and pay the required application fees.
Simply put, Texas is reciprocal with all states that issue an adjuster’s license EXCEPT California, New York and Hawaii. These guys don’t play ball with anyone and if you want to handle claims in those states, you’ll need to take their exam. With the exception of those three states, all others that are not included in the below list do not require licensure of their adjusters at all. As such, these states are NOT reciprocal with Texas. If you live in one of these states and wish to adjust claims in Texas, you will either need to secure a Texas Non-Resident license.
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
I loved the way the course was presented! I love that I could read small sections and then be tested on that instead of reading on my own (AIC). I really liked that this course took into account a lot of different coverages. It’s the first time I’ve been successful on a course like this.
“Mr. Greer and his online school AE21.com not only provided what was needed for licensing in the Insurance field as a claims adjuster for Texas Dept. of Insurance, but he was informative and hands on with his students, myself being one. He and his team responded to all inquiries, answered all questions knowledgeably and provided and excellent explanation readying me for a professional career as a claims adjuster. Thank you to Mr. Greer and his team for all their assistance. What a wonderful experience.”
First let me congratulate you on your online course, AE21. I have attached a copy of my background so you would see I am not inexperienced when it comes to handling claims. I took the course as an opportunity to teach a young man and introduce him to our wonderful profession. I found your online course to be both challenging and informative. I was pleasantly surprised to find the sections on ethics and how well you spoke to those issues and how critical they are to our industry going forward. I had the opportunity to speak with April on your staff and found her to be knowledgeable, friendly, and professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to any individual or company looking for a great online course. Again my sincere thanks and I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed taking this course.
This was one of the best courses I have ever taken. I see no reason why every adjuster should not have their all-lines license, and they should use this course to obtain same. If I had been able to obtain my all-lines license in the past with this convenience, I would have and it sure would have changed my career path and where I am today.
Thanks again… I love the AE21 Online courses. They are awesome.
