Property/Casualty Compensation Survey

The results of the 2018 Property/Casualty Compensation Survey are now available.

NAMIC has partnered once again with Ward Group to conduct the Property/Casualty Compensation Survey. Ward Group, a business unit of Aon plc, is the leading provider of benchmarking services for property/casualty insurance companies.


The ability to understand your competitive pay market is key to ensuring that your company’s pay is aligned with performance. With the Ward Group’s survey, participants can leverage pay data covering more than 1,500 roles ranging from executive positions down to entry-level support roles, with data broken out by geographic region, company size, and company type (mutual versus non-mutual). Results can be combined with the company's operational and financial benchmarks to help companies assess their pay levels; understand compensation relative to performance; and develop competitive compensation plans. Participants can also compare their compensation practices against customized benchmark groups, including top industry performers.
