Maryland does not license insurance adjusters. For Maryland residents wanting to become a licensed independent adjuster, a nonresident Designated Home State (DHS) License can be obtained from Texas. We have the courses you need to fulfill your licensing requirements.
Maryland Insurance Adjuster Licensing
Get Your Adjuster License for the State of Maryland Here
Maryland is one of several states that don’t offer state-specific licensing. They do acknowledge other states’ licenses. For example, if you become a licensed insurance adjuster in the state of Texas, Maryland will accept your credentials so that you can work in their state as well. Texas remains one of the most popular Designated Home State options for adjusters from non-licensing states.
To work as an insurance adjuster in Maryland, 2021 Training recommends getting your Texas All-Lines Adjuster License and choosing Texas as your “Designated Home State”. This approach opens the door to more deployment opportunities and ensures you don’t miss out on the necessary Continuing Education courses you need to keep your license up-to-date. Since Texas is a huge state with a variety of severe weather events, many adjusters choose to become licensed here. As a result, CE courses are plentiful in Texas.

Why Get a TEXAS Insurance Adjuster License?
You’ll need a certain number of Continuing Education credits to renew your license. While you might be able to earn your license faster in some states, Texas is always on the list for approved CE courses. When you’re licensed here, you can be sure you’ll always have plenty of state-approved CE courses available. The same is not true for all states.
Texas is also recognized by many states for reciprocity. This makes it easy to get licensed in other states if you keep your Texas license current. Reciprocity means the other states recognize your Texas license and don’t require you to take their own state licensing exams. This also applies to states like Maryland that don’t have their own licensing.
