Every insurance carrier is facing the reality of a shortage of talented, experienced workers as the nation's 79 million baby boomers reach retirement age. It is widely estimated that up to 30 percent of claims adjusters leave carriers every year. The result is a dearth of experienced adjusters, who traditionally brought new recruits up to speed in the complex world of claims processing.
