Savvy Business Owner Helping to Expose Myths About Insurance and Open Doors for Black Job Seekers to Find Lucrative Careers in Claims Adjusting

Atlanta, GA – July 8, 2020 – According to a recent study by the National African American Insurance Association, African Americans are underrepresented in the insurance industry and is an industry rife with unconscious bias, limiting opportunities for Blacks to move up in corporate ranks.  However, one business owner is committed to helping open the doors of opportunity for Black job seekers, and get them qualified to work in claims adjusting. 

Ebahi Ejerekhile, founder of Major Adjusters, LLC., says that her company’s mission is to inform and educate job seekers on exactly how the claims process works to make them qualified to support companies like Allstate, USAA, and even State Farm. Due to incidences of increased storm damage around the hundreds of adjusters are needed to survey property damage. 

“Not only is it doing good for the community, but it pays well. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the median salary for claims adjuster at $66,540/year, but others have been known to make much more,” says Ejerekhile. “Insurance veteran Guy Grand, author of Catastrophic Insurance Adjusting, has shared how he earned $135,000 in less than 4 months adjusting devastating losses in the Southwest and we want to help bring that opportunity to people, particularly before the 2020 storm season hits,” she shared. 

The job of claims adjusting involves inspecting property damage to determine how much the insurance company should pay to repair that damage, which includes interviewing home or business owners, taking photos, developing and disseminating written documentation, etc. 

A former Field Operations Specialist for Google Maps, Ejerekhile says she got into this side of insurance after a former colleague texted a photo of her paystub, which was nearly $5,000 for two weeks of work during Hurricane Harvey. 

“So I did the math and jumped on board,” says Ejerekhile.  “I actually used to be one of the biggest critics of the insurance industry, but after becoming a licensed claims adjuster, but now I am one of their biggest advocates,” she shared. “Claims adjusting has been kept a secret among non-minority networks, but we’re breaking barriers and informing African-Americans about having a career as an insurance claims adjuster,” she continued. “This is a viable option for furloughed employees and career changers because anyone can do this job, which is really important for the challenging economic times people are experiencing in our nation right now,” she said.

Georgia law requirements for becoming a claims adjuster, includes completing a 40-hour online course, taking a 100-question exam and passing a background check.  Ejerekhile’s Major Adjusters online program assists participants with all that’s required.

Although a very viable profession, training, mentorship and professional experience are key to securing positions in the industry, which Ejerekhile offers through her affordable online course at 

“This is a career option that more people need to know about because it’s an essential job function that is unaffected by government shutdowns and offers a financial lifestyle equal to what successful medical doctors or corporate lawyers earn,” says Ejerekhile.  “However, like the medical and legal industries, insurance is highly regulated, so candidates will not only need to get a license, but also build skills and get relevant experience, all of which we can help our students obtain through our online course and coaching program,” she said. 

Ejerekhile is so enthusiastic about sharing the information on careers in claims adjusting, she created a YouTube Channel, which shares additional information entitled, “Claims Adjusters of the Year.” The channel has grown to 4,000 subscribers in less than two years. 

The interactive online five-day, 40-hour course offered at is $400 and includes guiding participants with easy to follow instructions to pass the insurance license exam.  Participants can also access a two-day live training bootcamp, which is an additional cost, but highly recommended. 

“This industry thrives during uncertain economic time and government shutdown and we’ve been extremely busy during the recent shutdown due to Covid-19,” shared Ejerekhile.  “In addition, we’re finding more job seekers between 30’s – 50’s interested in finding a well-paying second career that will give them back some control of their lives and schedule. Having your insurance license opens the door for people to work from home and spend more time with their family,” she continued.  “As a continuous student of the industry, I strongly encourage African Americans seriously consider becoming licensed insurance professionals, because it’s been a secretive career for far too long,” she said.
