I’ve been in the insurance business for nearly 15 years. My main job functions were customer service and claims processing. My base salary has only peaked to 40(ish)k without OT. I’m looking to evolve into a higher paying position. Any advice as to what positions I could look into?

As a data analyst? Bruh/Girl, you’re way underpaid at 40k. Claim adjuster make over $60k base, underwriter w/ additional cert like CPCU make over 70k & depending on YOE can make over $90-100k exclusive of bonus.

You need to start applying & best of luck!

Thank you so much for your input! I really appreciate that!

If I were you, I will not even ask for an increase with my current. I would just straight look for an outside opportunity.

The max increase your current employer can give you is 20% (10% if they feel like you're not ready to quit but felt bad for exploiting you). If you move employer, you can probably get 100% increase.

So my advise, start working on your resume and apply to jobs. Then watch your current employer offer you $$$ when you hand over your resignation (and of course never accept any counter).

Couldn’t get this post out my head… LOL
Don’t know your location but please look around. This economy is too crazy to be making $40 ish annually. This may not be a fit for you but my point is there are jobs paying great. Best of luck!

If you are in data analytics, I would assess your current skillset. Look for ways to learn if you are missing skills.
Excel
SQL
Power BI or Tableau
Python (I recommend learning the first 3 before this)

I would suggest checking out courses on Coursera such as the Google Data Analyst Certificate or learning platforms like Udemy, or Maven Analytics. If you master the skills above and build a portfolio I would expect your skills could be making you 80k+ (depending on geography) especially given your domain knowledge in insurance.

Yeah, I'd say if you're still on good terms with colleagues, then renegotiating that base might be a good idea. With 15 years of experience, it'd be easy to talk yourself into a higher base salary than 40k. You probably have so many intangible skills that out qualify that rate.

uplifting

Thanks for your input! I’m definitely going to have a meeting with my manager.

Have you ever advocated for a higher pay for yourself? With 15 years of experience, you should've been wayyy above 40k. If they are not open to renegotiating, you should even look into getting offers from another company.

I agree. that is a really low salary for that much experience. 2% isn't going to cut it.

Something is not right. Data analysts have very in demand skills. And at 15 YOE, that’s bogus. I was making 40k as an entry level adjuster 15 years ago… my guess is you’ll easily at least double your salary if you look externally.
