What an SPPA can do for me

These designations have helped me perform my job better in so many ways. I am able to put myself in the customer’s shoes and be more empathetic. The main thing is educating the public about the insurance industry and to be trustworthy and honest, and you’re protecting the customer. You’re protecting their interest and you put their needs above your own. It’s made me a better adjuster, a better person, and all around it’s just an amazing experience.
