Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Forensic Accountants with a lot of experience tend to enjoy higher salaries. After five to 10 years, starting salaries jump from $62K to $81K. Paychecks spring to six figures after 10 to 20 years on the job, approximating $103K. The 20-year mark seems to bring slower salary growth, and Forensic Accountants at this tenure level tend to see their incomes plateau to $120K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up less than 10 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 10 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10 percent. Workers in this area tend to have one to nine years of experience.
