Pay by Experience Level for Insurance Clerk

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


Insurance Clerks with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Survey participants with less than five years' experience report a median income of $26K, and earnings aren't much higher for respondents who have five to 10 years under their belts; respondents in the latter group report a median of just $26K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Insurance Clerks make a median salary of $31K. In the end, the overall pattern seems to be that more experience generally corresponds to higher pay; an Insurance Clerk with more than 20 years of experience can earn $33K on average.
