Pay by Experience Level for Insurance Clerk

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


For Insurance 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. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $26K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $28K. Insurance Clerks who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $31K. Insurance Clerks who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are no higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years.
