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.

I have a driving while license revoked habitual offender from 2010...Do you think this will stop me from obtaining a health insurance license?

All criminal convictions, felonies or misdemeanors, may interfere with a person's ability to obtain an insurance license. The final decision is made by the state insurance regulator.

I have 3 felonies, possession of cocain, burglary of and occupied dwelling and Larson/criminal mischief. Will these require a waiver?

I am turning 25 in January and am wanting to get my insurance license for property and casualty. I know I will have to submit to a background check and have a couple of things that will come up on it and i was wanting to know how it may affect me. I tried contacting Texas Insurance Department but they are stating I have to take the test, pay for fingerprints, etc before they are able to tell me anything.

I received my first charge when I was 17 years old for petty theft, i pled guilty because I was. I had it deferred off my record which I know will not hide it from the State.

A couple of months ago I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was arrested for petty theft. I have not been to court but my lawyer and myself are confident that we can get it dismissed. That does not help me now however.

Is it possible for me to still receive my license?

Anything is possible.

I'm currently going to court for Possession of a Controlled Substance (less than a gram). I have not pled or been convicted of anything. Will that prevent me from getting a license or working for an insurance company?

I am thinking about taking classes to get adjustor license for 50 states. I work for insurance company in clerical but layoffs are coming jobs going overseas. Would this stop me from getting a license? :roll:

You don't get a license "for 50 states". You apply for a resident license in the state where you pay income tax and maybe apply for non-resident licenses in a couple of other states. To be licensed as an adjuster in 50 states would cost you several thousand dollars in license fees every two years. If you are not a US resident, you cannot be licensed here.
