  • If applicant holds an active resident non-adjuster license in a state that licenses resident adjusters, the applicant may not designate a home state.
  • If designated home state license is inactive at the time of application, applicant may select another non-resident state with an active adjuster license as the designated home state.
  • Applicant may not select New Mexico as their Adjuster Designated Home State while applying for their Non-Resident New Mexico license. – Applicant will need to apply via No Home State Application
  • Public Adjusters cannot designate a home state.
  • Applicants who designate a home state must answer the following questions:
  • Did you qualify for this license type by passing an adjuster examination?
  • If yes, which state?
    • What lines of authority did the adjuster exam cover?
      • Non-Resident adjusters are required to complete CE in their Designated Home State where they hold an active license and have a CE requirement; otherwise, they must complete New Mexico CE requirements. What state will you designate to complete CE?

If applicant responds "yes" to one of the background questions please submit supporting documents electronically via NIPR's Attachments Warehouse. The documents may also be submitted to the state via mail, email, or fax. All other required documentation must be forwarded directly to the state.
