I am wanting to go back into the insurance industry I have 5 years experience doing insurance and then went into banking for 3 years. I am licensed in property, casualty, life and health still looking at doing customer service with the clients and possibly some sales but mostly CSR. Having a 3 year break from insurance what should I expect for a salary with 5 years previously and still have an active license

Your time away from insurance should have no effect on the salary that you require. If you know how to do the job and you'll do it well then you should expect the salary that is commensurate with that. You are already seeing yourself as less than deserving a full salary. With that attitude you will not get the salary you want. Value yourself a little bit more and own what you can deliver for the new company. Good luck.

To echo that, your skills and experience didn't go away, speak to them confidently during interviews, and don't even call out the break.

In that same vein, it is entirely common for people to switch industries or to a totally new kind of role entirely, and make the mid to high range for their new role because they demonstrated that their cumulative experience enables them to do the new job well. I did exactly that, and make more in the new position than the one that I left having 2 decades of experience.

The industry hasn't changed. Treat those years of experience as if they were in use now.
