Adjuster Licensing Requirements
- Citizenship Requirement:
An applicant for licensure must be a United States citizen or legal alien who possesses work authorization from the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. ALL APPLICANTS MUST PROVIDE A VALID SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. If you are a legal alien with a work authorization visa, you must apply for and obtain a Social Security Card prior to applying for licensure with the Florida Department of Financial Services.
- Fingerprinting Requirement:
Fingerprinting is required for almost all licenses for both Florida residents and non-residents. They must be completed through the vendor IdentoGO by Idemia (formerly MorphoTrust USA) and will be submitted to Florida DFS electronically.
For additional details and to make an appointment, view the Fingerprinting Information page on the Florida DFS website.
Note: Criminal history checks are valid for only ONE (1) YEAR. This means that if an applicant applies for an additional class of insurance license during this one one year period, he/she will NOT be required to file another fingerprint card unless specifically requested to by the Department.
Requirements for applicants with prior criminal history.
- Licensing Fees:
