Pay by Experience Level for Insurance Claims Processor

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Insurance Claims Processors with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $30K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $33K on average. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $37K in this role. Veterans who have worked for more than two decades do tend to make the most in the end; the median pay for this group is $41K. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience — of those surveyed, more than half land within this range. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up one-fifth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than one-tenth, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining roughly one in eight.
