Claims adjusters, appraisers, examiners, and investigators
Description: Insurance claims adjusters and claims investigators check to make sure that claims filed are covered by their company's policies. Then they decide how much should be paid and okay the payment. If the claim is not covered, they deny payment. Appraisers travel to see damaged property and assess how much the damage is worth. Sometimes investigators check out suspicious or unusual claims for fraud.
