About Us

The mission of AAPIA is to provide a forum for the dissemination of timely market- and industry-related information, to provide education and social functions, and to serve as a representative voice for licensed public adjusters in all aspects of the Public Insurance Adjusting Profession.

Founded in 2004, AAPIA's goal is to ensure that the rights of a public adjuster are represented, so that the licensed public adjuster can be able to work in a fair and open marketplace. In accordance with this goal, we:

  • Report regularly to all Public Insurance Adjusters nationwide on matters that pertain to them.
  • Communicate with insurance commissioners and regulators in every state, addressing important policyholder issues as they arise.
  • Assist regulators with legal analysis.
  • Inform the public on “The Value of a Public Adjuster.”
  • Inform the licensed public adjuster of the ethical standards that are required to maintain a public adjuster license.
  • Monitor all state licensing laws and regulations that can have an impact on Public Insurance Adjusters in how they represent policyholders.
  • Advocate for the profession of Public Insurance Adjusters nationally.
  • Meet with insurance commissioners and governmental regulators throughout the country discussing language and rules and regulations so that the license of a public adjuster is properly maintained and enacted, and at times offers expert analysis to aid the process.
  • Advocate for all licensed public adjusters
  • Advocate for continuing education units for all public adjusters so that they can continue to advance and improve their knowledge of the industry they represent.
  • Work with the licensing industry to educate.
  • Work with the many insurance fraud and abuse agencies in each state.
  • Advocate for new licensing laws for public adjusters, such as those we fought for in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, and Illinois

We look forward to working with you!
