Want To Make A Better Buck Than Average? Insurance Jobs Might Be For You
When it comes to making better money than average, insurance jobs could be the answer for you.
According to America’s Professor, insurance jobs are plenty lucrative. The site points out:
The most recent government data regarding the average income of American insurance agents was compiled in 2012. According to that data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
- The median annual wage for insurance agents was $48,150.
- The highest paid 10% of insurance agents earned more than $116,940 annually.
- The lowest paid 10% of insurance agents earned less than $26,120 annually.
As the numbers show, there is a wide range of possible incomes for insurance agents. Because the amount of money insurance agents earn is comprised largely of commissions and bonuses, the number of sales an insurance agent makes is the biggest factor that contributes to the disparity between the highest and lowest paid of insurance agents. Factors such as the price of the plans they sell and the type of insurance they specialize in also contribute to the wide range of incomes for insurance agents.
According to the most recent census data, the average median salary for an American worker is $26,695 per year. If you were paying attention to numbers regarding the income of insurance agents, above, you’ve probably already noticed that the average median income in the insurance industry is nearly twice that of the average median income per person. With the lowest 10% of insurance agents earning around $26,120, even those insurance agents who are paid below the industry average can expect to be making more than the average American income.
