What do Claims Adjusters do? More Hispanics are needed in this field.

I have been an Independent Insurance Adjuster for 9 years now. It is a rewarding and challenging position.

First, I would like to explain what it is not. Despite rumor and innuendo, it is not a position to cheat or underpay the customer, the Insured or Policyholder. Proper Insurance Adjusters inspect, analyze and decide what is covered or not under property or casualty claims. Nothing more, nothing less. We do not get paid extra or bonuses to Deny a claim. Most adjusters work…

Arizona Law Goes Too Far

The new law in Arizona making it a State crime to be illegal will allow police officers to stop anyone that they "suspect" to be an illegal immigrant is wrong.

This is the Federal Government's responsibility, not the states.

Let's use some common sense here. A police officer in Arizona knows that most illegal immigrants there are of Mexican origin. Also, most illegal Mexicans have tan skin and dark hair. This means that most of the people that will be targeted will be…

Hispanics and the future of the USA

I saw some info from the US Census the other day. Interesting fact about Hispanics. Between 1995 and 2025, Hispanics will make up 44% of the growth in the USA.

What does this mean for Hispanics and the USA? Despite what people believe, we both need each other. Granted, while Spanish and Mexican people have been in what is now the USA since the 1500's, the huge influx of Hispanics over the last 30 years has been a challenge for the country. As prior immigrants have gone through…

In the Telenovela that is Honduras, the latest chapter provides us with a positive turn of events.The Presidential election is over and Porifirio Lobo of the National Party led with 56 percent of the votes, defeating Elvin Santos of the Liberal Party which had 38 percent. The interesting part of this is that both former president Manuel Zelaya and interim president Roberto Micheletti were members of the Liberal Party.

The National Party is more of a center-right party than the… Continue

Former Honduran President Zelaya throws a fit

Deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya is getting more and more frustrated with his ally, the Obama Administration. He stated today that "The United States has weakened in the face of the dictator." The "dictator" he is describing is interim President Roberto Micheletti.

Interim President Micheletti and Former President Zelaya reached an agreement on October 30th. The US supported this agreement. The Presidential Election is set for the 29th of this month and neither Zelaya or… Continue

Thanks for the welcome Roberto. It's appreciated. I am not a Realtor now, however, am considering it. Your career sounds very interesting. I have been thinking about getting into the Insurance field.

Dear Roberto,

I just read you message. Please give your wife my best wishes - teaching children is so important. As for our NYCDOE public schools -our salaries are very competitive - starting salary with just a BA and no experience is at 45,000 - however what makes us particularily attractive is we do not sign annual contracts -once you are teaching if you hold satisfactory service you are automatically teaching again the followign year; addditionally we have amazing professional development and 1,500 schools to chose from with emphasis on encouraging teachers to be leaders; and finally we have a health benefits plan worth $ 20,000 - apart from this the living costs are reduced in many ways in NYC as you do not need a car to get around and you can find reasonable rentals in all the boroughs if you explore and are willing to keep an open mind. As for my travel...my father worked for CARE -so that caused the movement...and as for our competitiveness I think we have hope that this next generation will be maybe more focused as we slowly turn away from a "me"centered "I" centered culture and move towards community - also this economy I bleieve will make us have more of an emphasis on education and skills building...but we are not where we could be ...and we need to invest more time in this area.
