Florida Insurance Jobs Reflect the Population

Florida insurance jobs are plentiful due to a growing population, especially among retirees. With a temperate climate and easy access to the surrounding ocean, Florida has always been a magnet for "snowbirds" who seek the sun during the hard winters in the northern part of the United States. More and more retirees, though, are finding a permanent home in Florida.

For a fast start on your insurance job search, go online with the State of Florida website and websites of major insurance companies. If you dream of living in the warmth and coastal beauty of this state, you can use the Internet from wherever you currently live to make initial explorations of the job possibilities and even to apply online. Florida insurance jobs cover the gamut from sales to investigator.

State Oversight

Insurance jobs are available in an industry regulated by the Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) in the Department of Financial Services (DFS). Recently streamlined to create a more efficient and consumer-friendly department, the DFS acknowledges the strong trend toward the expansion of banking and insurance financial products into each other's areas. The DFS now regulates both industries and offers a "one-stop shop" for consumers to get answers and help.

The OIR is responsible for the "regulation, compliance, and enforcement" of regulations and laws that apply to the insurance business. This office is a resource for information regarding insurance jobs in the state, including brief job descriptions and licensing requirements. The website of the DFS differentiates, for example, among adjusters, emergency adjusters, company adjusters, independent adjusters, and public adjusters.
