hardly any of the money actually lines my dads pockets but yes we are quite well off. He supports me and my mum here and I cost 26,000 a year in school fees and he has a gf and a flat in Singapore which he is the main bread winner for. he travels tons corporations all over the world and so he travels where the work is if that means popping over to the US for a week once a month then he will he also has multiple claims at a time as claims can take several years and even longer when it goes to court my dad has a case from 13 years ago which he hasn't yet wrapped up. It is a pretty good job lots of money lots of travel manageable hours but a very difficult field to get into. When you make a insurance claim you get a loss adjustor working for the insurance company to visit your home and asses the damage and the minimal cost the insurance company has to pay that is what my dad did on a corporate scale 20 odd years ago then he flipped it around as the corporations pay a lot more then any insurance company who are obviously trying to get minimal costs from the claim against them.
If your a very good loss adjuster for an insurance company one of there top members of staff you will earn 50-100 thousand pounds a year which is steady. If you work for the corporations against the insurance companies then you don't have a steady pay but you get paid in lump sums at the end of the claim so its a gamble but if you win you win big :P.
There are all certain other perks of the job, such as when our house needed repairs they sent some young new loss adjuster out to survey the property and the damage. My dad put the guy in his place and just manipulated the situation like he is use to and we not only got enough money to repair our house we also did some improvements and restructured the whole east wing all paid for by the insurance company
