Missouri Insurance Adjuster Licensing
Get Your Adjuster License for the State of Missouri Here
The State of Missouri does not offer or require licensing for insurance claims adjusters, but it’s still important to get your license so that you can practice there and in numerous other states. One way to do this is by obtaining your license in a state like Texas that gives you access to the Continuing Education courses you’ll need to keep your license current. Sound confusing? Let us explain.
Most insurance adjusters get their Texas Insurance Adjuster License. At 2021 Training, we train you to become an insurance adjuster licensed in the state of Texas. A Texas license is recognized in most states and will give you the freedom to work in states that don’t offer their own state-specific licensing.
As an insurance adjuster, you’ll want to be able to work in a number of states to get variety and to increase your workload. Texas is a large state with volatile storm seasons, so many adjusters like to work there. Texas does require adjusters to be licensed. If you were from Louisiana, you’d get your Texas adjuster license through reciprocity after you’ve obtained a Louisiana Adjuster License, but with no adjuster license required in Missouri, how would you do that? Simple: obtain a Texas All-Lines Adjuster License and select Texas as your “Designated Home State”.
2021 Training offers online classes to help you get your Texas Insurance Adjuster License easily and quickly. There is no travel or classroom time involved. Everything is done online from your computer, at a pace that’s comfortable for you. Our CE classes are approved by the state of Texas to meet all your Continuing Education requirements.

Why Get a TEXAS Insurance Adjuster License?
Getting licensed is one thing, but you also need to renew that license periodically. For that, you need Continuing Education. It’s easy to get CE credits for Texas. Most conferences you attend as an adjuster will always have their CE credits approved for Texas. Some companies recommend other states, but not many of those states will give you CE credits, which makes it harder to renew your license. You’ll always find Texas on the list where CE courses are offered.
Texas is also recognized by many states for reciprocity. This makes it easy to get licensed in other states as long as you keep your Texas license current. Reciprocity means the other states recognize your Texas license and don’t require you to take their licensing exam.

Missouri is a flat, agricultural state that suffers catastrophic losses due to floods and droughts. It ranks as one of the nation’s most-flooded states. It also gets it share of tornadoes every year, some of which have been so severe that they went down in history as natural disasters.
