Can I become a insurance adjuster if I have a felony?

All licenses in the insurance industry are issued under the authority of the state, however, the federal Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act (18 USC 1033, 1034) specifies that persons who have committed certain felonies are prohibited from being involved without a consent waiver from the state regulator. If your felony specifically involved a money or property crime, among others, you will need the waiver. There is no statute of limitations on when the crime/conviction occurred.

Your crimes are among those covered under the Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act and could result in license denial. You simply need to contact the Colorado Dept of Insurance and speak to someone in producer licensing about this. They will give you better information than anyone here can.

I had a felony charge for growing bud in Florida in 2009. Can I get a insurance adjusters license in taxes?

That's a question for the Texas Insurance Commissioner. The answer is uncertain.

If your conviction was more than 5 years ago, the answer is maybe. If less than five years, probably not.

I was convicted of a felony DUI in Kansas. Will I be able to get a claims adjuster license?

Pretty less information provided to offer a valid response! What degree felony conviction was that? When were you convicted? Did you get in touch with the licensing authority - Kansas Dept. of Insurance?

Wonderful command of the English language.

It doesn't matter what "degree" felony a conviction may be. A felony is a felony.

DUI is not in the list of "1033" offenses, but it is still a concern of the state, and it can interfere with one's ability to be licensed. The only one who has the answer and can make that decision is the Insurance Commissioner.

I was convicted of a felony stealing charge when I was 18. almost 8 yrs later, I am now going to be 26 soon. Do you think it will be difficult to obtain the waiver and get licensed in the state of Missouri?

Theft is one of the covered felonies. You will require a 1033 waiver. The only one who can answer your question is the Missouri Insurance Commissioner.
