Why doesn’t my membership apply to hurricanes, tropical storms, earthquakes and flood?
Major catastrophes generate to many claims for 1 company to handle. Even large insurance companies must add temporary staff. The licensing process a public adjuster must navigate is time consuming and does not allow for a quick ramp up of staff. We also do not want inexperienced staff delivering our product. That is why we limit our catastrophe services to our existing members on a first come first serve basis.
Why do I have to pay to get my Catastrophic claim adjusted?
Catastrophes require extra commitment on the part of adjusters to meet the demands of a large influx of losses. We offset that by offering added compensation to our staff. You benefit in turn by receiving public adjusting services at a substantially reduced price over the open market. Our Platinum level membership pays 6% of the net recovery. Our Premium level membership pays 8% of the net recovery.
I already have a claim but don’t have a membership. How can I get your service?
Our In Process plan offers you an alternative to navigating the claims process alone.
Do I have to enter into a long-term contract for membership?
Not at all. Our minimum agreement is 1 year, after which time you can renew your membership at the same level or upgrade if you so choose.
Suppose I have an EMPower membership and find that I need the services of a ClaimShieldUSA Public Adjuster?
No Problems there! You can upgrade your membership. However, you will have to also purchase fee-based Public Adjusting. The fee for this service is 10% of the net recovery. This compares very favorably when compared to the 20% most other public adjusters charge. Also, you are credited your EMPower level membership fee with the upgrade.
Will ClaimShieldUSA Public Adjusters name be included on my insurance check?
That depends. If you are a Premium or Platinum member and the loss is not from a catastrophic event (like a hurricane or earthquake) then no. If you have signed up for our InProcess membership or the loss arises from a catastrophic event, then yes.
