Adjuster

Resident Adjusters
The following are requirements to become a resident adjuster:
  • Complete the application for adjuster license, Form 3515
  • The license fee is $80. The fee is not pro-rated and is non-refundable and non-transferable.
  • Provide the original South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) report.
  • The original exam report from PSI showing the applicant has passed the adjuster examination. This certificate expires 12 months after issuance. Contact PSI directly at 800-733-9267 to register for the state licensing exam. View exam content outlines.
  • Letter of Clearance: If the license status cannot be verified on the State Producer Licensing Database (SPLD), a letter of clearance, less than six months old, is required if the applicant was previously licensed as a resident adjuster in another state.
 
Non-Resident Adjusters
The following are requirements to become a non-resident adjuster:
  • Complete the application for adjuster license, Form 3515.
  • The license fee is $80. If you are a resident of a state that charges a fee in excess of $80, your resident state fee will be assessed since fees are retaliatory under South Carolina Law. 
    • Examples of retaliatory fees are: North Carolina - $175 Georgia - $115  
  • Provide certification from the applicant's resident Department of Insurance. If the license status cannot be verified on the SPLD, a letter of certification from the home state must be submitted. The certificate must show the applicant is licensed in their home state as an adjuster and that an adjuster examination has been passed. If the applicant's home state does not require an adjuster examination, then a certificate can be used from another state where the applicant is licensed and has taken and passed an adjuster examination. If the above cannot be provided, then the applicant will be required to pass South Carolina's adjuster examination. Registration for South Carolina's adjuster examination is done through PSI Services LLC. Contact PSI directly at 800-733-9267. View exam content outlines.
