Projections based on his past, current and future salaries suggest Dr. Anthony Fauci will net the largest federal retirement package in history — an unprecedented golden parachute made possible by career-end salary spiking — when he retires in 2025.
This week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, announced his retirement effective January 2025.
By then, he will have turned 85 years old and served in the federal government for 59 years.
Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com crunched Fauci’s cash pension payout as of his anticipated retirement date.
Today, Fauci earns a federal salary of $480,654 per year. However, by 2024, Fauci will likely be making $530,000 in salary — an increase of nearly $200,000 since 2014.
Therefore, we estimate that Fauci’s first-year pension payout will exceed $414,000 — more than the salary of the president of the United States ($400,000).
