Are there any work from home insurance jobs?
If you’re interested in working in the insurance industry, you’ll become one of over 300,000 people that the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) said worked as insurance claims adjusters, appraisers, examiners, or investigators in 2014.
The BLS says the median pay as of 2015 was $63,060 per year, or about $30.32 per hour, with an expectation of 3% growth between 2014 and 2024. These numbers are pretty good, and this doesn’t include sales, underwriting, or other insurance industry jobs.
These companies offer insurance claims or claims-related jobs, customer service, adjuster, and other jobs. Most work from home insurance jobs are restricted to certain states. Positions may not be open at this time, but check each company website for updates.
