Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Though Authorization Specialists can expect regular salary growth as they advance in their careers, experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase. New Authorization Specialists earn approximately $30K, only slightly increasing to $30K after five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $36K. After 20 years of work in the field, Authorization Specialists typically earn $40K and go on to enjoy (slight) increases in earnings. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about one in five of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 5 percent. Workers in this area tend to have one to nine years of experience.
