About The Society of General Adjusters

What is The Society?

The Society also assists in providing additional employment opportunities. This is a benefit to our members as a way to have firms, carriers, and other potential employers reach out to offer claims work when they are looking for a Certified General Adjuster, rather than looking elsewhere. Our members also receive higher compensation at times from certain employers who pay a higher fee for the expertise and experience of an adjuster who has the CGA or CFGA designations.

Exceeding Standards

Turn To Us

We are who you turn to. One of the benefits of being part of The Society, is that we are an organization of specific, experienced adjusters, rather than just some social media claims group, or a self-appointed title. Many firms/carriers reach out to us to find members to handle certain assignments rather than just assigning to an ordinary adjuster who may or may not have the experience and skill set to handle it the best way possible. We don't deploy anyone. We are not a firm. We certify through our process and Board of Directors, that members of The Society are qualified, experienced adjusters. Insurers understand that when an adjuster with the CGA/CFGA designation seeks work, that the adjuster not only meets, but exceeds the standards they may be looking for. We also reply to all inquiries from insurers to verify that the member is in good standing, and comes with our high recommendation.

The Society

The Society of General Adjusters, an association of professionals, was founded upon the premise to afford its members the opportunity to better serve the adjusting community at large.

Certified General Adjuster (CGA) Designation

The Society of General Adjusters is the only international society to provide the "Certified General Adjuster" (CGA) designation recognizing those who qualify, separating them from the self-appointed general adjusters.

Certified Flood General Adjuster (CFGA) Designation

The Society offers a special designation for flood adjusters, "Certified Flood General Adjuster" (CFGA). This designation recognizes those adjusters who not only are a Certified General Adjuster, but also meet those criteria specializing in Flood claims (both NFIP and private flood).
