Applications that need additional regulatory review will be referred to the Agent Services Division for a licensing decision. Additional information on the license administration services provided by Pearson VUE is available at the state.

Adjuster Designated Home State (ADHS) Rules:

  1. In order for an applicant to designate a home state, the applicant must have an active non-resident Adjuster license on the Producer Database (PDB) and no active resident Adjuster license.
  2. If applicant holds only a Producer (non-adjuster) resident license in a state that licenses resident Adjusters, applicant is not permitted to designate an active non-resident adjuster license as their home state license. If applicant holds a Producer (non-adjuster) resident license in a state that does not license resident adjusters, applicant is allowed to designate a home state.
  3. If applicant has an active resident Adjuster license on the PDB, this license must be used to apply for a non-resident Adjuster license. Applicant may not designate a home state.
  4. If applicant has an active Producer (non-adjuster) resident license, and no active non-resident Adjuster license, applicant must use current active resident license to apply for a non-resident Adjuster license.
