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. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $26K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $30K on average — a distinctly larger sum. Insurance Claims Clerks who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $30K. 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.
