DESIGNATED HOME STATE (DHS)
If you live in a non-licensing state, you should obtain a “Designated Home State” or DHS license. A DHS license basically works just like having your home state license and is vital if you want to work any claims outside of your non-licensing state. If you live in Tennessee for example, you can adjust claims there without a license, but you can’t go work claims in Indiana, Florida The Carolinas or Texas. While a host of different states offer a DHS license, we recommend obtaining the Indiana Adjuster License.
WHAT IS RECIPROCITY?
Reciprocity, or reciprocal licensing privileges, allows a licensed adjuster to obtain another state(s) license without having to pass that specific state’s exam. Thank goodness, right? Once you have your home state or DHS license, you can apply for other state licenses through reciprocity. It’s not automatic – you will need to complete the required paperwork and submit the licensing fees which is normally between $ 40.00 – $ 150.00 but most licensing states are now reciprocal with each other. THIS EXCLUDES New York and California they do not reciprocate with any other state.
