If you have several felonies you can be one of the best public adjusters out there!

How long ago was your conviction? If less than 5-7 years, probably not.

You don't have a "long" history, you have an "old" history. It should not be an issue, but the conviction must still be disclosed. Failure to disclose is worse than the disclosure.

My husband wants to get licensed to be an insurance adjuster for roofing and construction. He got felony 7 years ago for some type of burglary/violating his probation. Again, this was 7 years ago. He hasn't made up his mind if he would work for an insurance company- but has a friend who will pay for his classes and licensing and wants my husband to work for him-as in self employment. Will my husband be able to get his license?

His conviction is within the scope of 18 USC 1033, 1034, which could prevent his licensing. It's up to your state's insurance regulator to decide. No one here can answer that question for you or your husband.

Probably will, but only the Insurance Commissioner can tell you for sure. Try calling the Dept of Insurance and speaking to a license application examiner about your situation.

I have a felony conviction for aggravated assault from 3 yrs back. I got 30 days probation and it was over. The only mark on my record. Would this prevent me from getting a 4-40 licence in the State of Florida?

Possibly. But only the insurance commissioner can tell you the answer to your question.

The post above that of J H applies to all states and all manner of insurance licenses. No one can answer these questions about felony and misdemeanor convictions with any certainty except the state regulator.

I just took the 40 hour pre-licensing course in Atlanta GA. The instructor informed me that I could not obtain a license for claims adjuster or agent because I had a felony. Befor I took the course I called the Insurance Commissioner (I think), and he said it was no problem. I was charged with posession of a controlled substance 4 years ago but only got probation no prison time. Will I be able to obtain the necessary licenses some how to continue my career in the insurance field, or am I just going to not get a chance from society to put my life back together and become a productive member in society and take care of my son?

Well, who do you think has the right answer, someone called the Insurance Commissioner or someone who teaches insurance classes?



Your crime is not one that is enumerated in the federal Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, but it could be an issue under state law.

You were convicted, and that's what matters. If the Commissioner has said it's not going to be a problem, I would rely on that -- because he's the one who makes that decision, not your prelicensing instructor.



When you apply for your license, just be sure to disclose the conviction (you probably pled "nolo contendere" [no contest]), or you really will have trouble.
