2013 Actuarial Salary Survey (PDF)

UPDATED ACTUARY SALARY SURVEYS (U.S. dollars, in thousands)
[BASE SALARY PLUS ACTUAL PAID ANNUAL BONUS]
RANGES REPRESENT THE 10TH AND 90TH PERCENTILES

COPYRIGHT 2013 - This survey may NOT be systematically duplicated on any website or other media.

This is not a full range of compensation packages. We find that the salaries + bonuses of 80% of the actuaries that we speak with fall within these ranges (the top and bottom 10% are excluded). These ranges are for students and designated actuaries who are serving in more or less traditional actuarial roles.  Compensation packages for this purpose include salary plus bonus.  Years of experience begins with first full-time actuarial experience. All types of actuarial employment - insurance, consulting and other employers - are combined.

Note: If you would like to be notified when the 2014 Actuarial Salary Survey is released, and/or simply want to be kept informed of open actuarial positions as they come available, please fill in our Quick Candidate Information Form at the bottom of this page.
