Pay by Experience Level for Benefits Specialist

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For many Benefits Specialists with Leave of Absence Administration skills, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. Survey participants with less than five years' experience report a median income of $46K, and earnings aren't much higher for respondents who have five to 10 years under their belts; respondents in the latter group report a median of just $47K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $49K in this role. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $53K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
