Presidents get many benefits when they have the most prestigious title in the United States: living in the White House, 24-hour housekeeping, and a fairly substantial salary.
But an advantage that you don't enjoy? Holidays.
"Presidents don't get a vacation – they only get a change of scene," Nancy Reagan once said.
While presidents can take trips to the golf course or summer houses, they are accompanied by aides, advisors and security guards, and the work is still done outside the White House.
In addition to having to work on the beach, presidents have several benefits that take a financial burden off their shoulders.
Under U.S. law, the President of the United States must receive a salary while in office. Under Title 3 of the United States Code, a president earns $ 400,000 and is still on the government payroll after leaving office. The President is also granted an annual expense account of $ 50,000, a non-taxable travel account of $ 100,000 and maintenance expenses of $ 19,000.
While seated presidents and former presidents receive multiple benefits beyond their terms, such as: As security and health insurance, the wardrobe budgets are not included. Presidents and their families do not usually receive or accept clothing as a "gift" from designers and celebrities on the red carpet. If a piece is accepted as a gift, it will be kept in the national archive as soon as it has been worn.
Aside from a prestigious title and worldwide recognition, take a look at the financial benefits of being the most powerful person in the United States (and possibly around the world).
