Being the president of the United States pays well at $400,000 a year, according to Title 3 of the U.S. Code. In addition, presidents also receive a $100,000 travel stipend; $50,000 annual expense account; and a whopping $19,000 to cover entertainment. There are plenty of other perks that come with the job, like free transportation and housing in some sweet digs. But the benefits don’t stop when the president finishes up their term either, as they receive a $200,000 annual pension and free official travel. Since the code’s creation, the role has seen five pay raises from its original salary of $25,000 yearly. That wasn’t chump change at the time, however, as it was roughly $600,000 in today’s terms.
