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. At career start (within the first five years), average income sits near $25K, and the average for folks who have worked for five to 10 years is only slightly higher at $27K. Insurance 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 $33K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
