Collection Workers


Collection workers might receive a salary plus a bonus or commission on the debt amounts they collect. Others work for a flat salary with no commissions. Since the pay system varies among different companies, incomes vary substantially. In May 2018, the median hourly wage for bill collectors working full time was $17.32, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). This hourly wage translates into a yearly median income of $36,020. Earnings for collection workers range from the lowest 10 percent earning less than $24,620 to the top 10 percent making $55,360 or more annually.
