Pay by Experience Level for Insurance Claims Clerk

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


For Insurance Claims Clerks, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. In this position, someone who has worked for fewer than five years can expect a median salary of $28K. The median for people with five to 10 years of experience is only a little bit higher at $29K. Insurance Claims Clerks see a median salary of $30K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $31K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
