Insurance Salary Survey

The Insurance Salary Survey reports compensation data for 143 benchmark jobs related to underwriting annuities and insurance policies and investing premiums to build up a portfolio of financial assets to be used against future claims. The survey includes insurance agents and brokers; life insurance carriers; medical, dental and disability insurance carriers; property and casualty insurance carriers; and insurance support activities and services.

The Insurance Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 14 executive and 129 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
