Title Examiners in the United States tend to be well-versed in their field, and a little over a half have more than 10 years of experience. Average salary is expected to be around $45K per year, but may range from $30K to $61K per year. The most influential factor affecting pay for this group is residence, though years of experience and the individual firm have a (lesser) impact as well. The majority of Title Examiners (68 percent) who took the survey are women. The majority of individuals in this role claim moderate levels of job satisfaction. Roughly a fourth of professionals in this line of work do not receive benefits; however, a fair number report medical coverage and more than half claim dental coverage as well. Figures cited in this summary are based on replies to PayScale's salary questionnaire.
