Non-Resident Public Adjuster
  1. Complete the Application for Public Adjuster License, Form 3518.
  2. Pay the license fee of $80. The fee is not pro-rated and is non-refundable and non-transferable. If you are a resident of a state that charges a fee in excess of $80, that rate will be accessed as fees are retaliatory under South Carolina Law. For example, the fee for Georgia residents is $100. The fee for North Carolina residents is $150.  
  3. Submit a home state certification. If the license status cannot be verified on the State Producer Licensing Database (SPLD), certification from the applicant's home state will be required. The certification must be legible and less than three months old. 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 licensing examination is done through PSI. Contact PSI directly at 800-733-9267 or online.
