Title Examiner Salary

Title Examiners who are practiced in their profession and carry more than 10 years of experience make up just below three-fifths of Title Examiners. Pay fluctuates from $29K to $59K per year, but expected earnings average $42K per year. The most important factor affecting compensation for this group is residence, followed by career duration and the individual firm. Not all workers are lucky enough to have benefits; in fact, just over one in five are without coverage. Medical insurance is claimed by a fair number and dental insurance is reported by a majority.
