We continue to receive many inquiries from adjusters about the opportunities available to work claims for 1 of the 45 Independent adjusting firms selected to work claims for Citizens Insurance of Florida.
Due to the number of requests, we have spent months following the topics to provide you links to information you should know to work the claims. We now have a list of the 45 vendors, the 103 page RFP the vendors had to use for operating standards to handle the claims with the amendments, the links to the 2007 Claim Procedure guide, links to the Citizens of FL Task force website and videos of task force committee meetings, Citizens Board meetings and links to the 45 vendors websites and have uploaded each of the Citizens pre-orientation meeting ads by selected firms we could locate as well as informational emails put out by many of the adjusting firms involved. If you need the details so you have the whole picture (not just information shared by your vendor), visit ClaimSmentor for links to more information.
This independent reference material includes links to so many good news articles on issues you will be facing working in Florida should a hurricane be suffered by our residents again this year. We as adjusters well know that the Florida financial insurance crisis will increase the stress of the policyholders we serve and you should be aware of the many issues they are reading about.
Many adjusters do not know where to locate this information and the reference links you need are all located and provided for you. This will serve as a great field resource when you are out working assignments. Other important information you should view includes Citizens Fee schedules, the fines to be imposed for adjuster infractions of time service guidelines, and contact information for Citizens personnel should you have difficulty recovering your fee payments from firms as some have experienced in prior seasons. That is a whole new topic in and of itself we’ll address in another posting. This reference material is independent research- we are not affiliated with the task force or Citizens of Fl. We are simply a claim staffing firm and also citizens of the state of FL very concerned and proactive in our followup on claim handling issues adjusters are facing.
We are going to continue to follow the developments in training options for you and additional reference material.
