Insurance Commissioner Thomas B. Leonardi announced Wednesday that in anticipation of a heavy volume of damage claims from the weekend blizzard, the Department is granting an automatic 90-day license extension for the insurance company casualty adjusters who were granted emergency licenses for Storm Sandy.

“We know carriers will be busy in the coming weeks with claims on hundreds of vehicle accidents, roof collapses and other property damage in the wake of this historic blizzard and we want them to be able serve customers as quickly as possible,” Commissioner Leonardi said. “We issued thousands of temporary adjuster licenses so that companies could deploy out-of-state help to handle Sandy claims. This automatic renewal will extend those licenses for three more months.”

The Department issued nearly 6,000 emergency adjuster licenses to more than 90 insurance companies for Storm Sandy requests.

The commissioner said for companies that need to secure new emergency adjuster licenses, the Department activated its Catastrophe Adjuster Licensing Program over the weekend and is processing new applications daily. The Program allows companies to mobilize substantial out-of-state help to meet the needs of their Connecticut customers.

Insurance companies can access the Catastrophe Adjuster Licensing Program online through the Insurance Department Web site.
