About Claims Adjuster Test Assessments
Claim Adjustors investigate, analyze, and determine the extent of an insurance company's liability concerning personal, casualty, or property loss or damages, and attempt to effect a settlement with claimants. They correspond with or interview medical specialists, agents, witnesses, or claimants to compile information. They calculate benefit payments and approve payment of claims within a certain monetary limit.
Claims adjustors and underwriters perform their work at different points in the insurance process. The underwriter, who determines the risk and cost of the policy, performs her job before insurance is approved and provided. The claims adjustor comes in when the insurance company must decide whether to pay a claim.
