An analysis of the money made by the president since the beginning

Currently, the salary of the president is $ 400 k . It all began in 1789 & salary has been raised 5 times since then.

According to the data that we have got, here is a table of salary in a given year in the history.

Year  ≅ Salary


1789 ≅ $ 25k

1873 ≅ $ 50k

1909 ≅ $ 75 k

1949 ≅ $ 100k

1969 ≅ $ 200k

2001 ≅ $ 400k

The 44 presidents that the country has seen since 1789 didn’t receive the pension & other security concerns even after retirement. This changed in 1958 & each former president receives the same salary as a current member of the Presidential Cabinet.
