How much is Bernie Sanders’ net worth?

Updated July 27, 2018 – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has an estimated net worth of $1.2 million. This is his half of the roughly $2.4 million that he and his wife Jane share as a household.

Bernie Sanders makes $174,000 per year as a senator. In the year 2017 he also received more than $800,000 in royalties for books he has authored. (He will also get a pension of over $70,000 when he leaves the Senate.)

His wife Jane was formerly president of Burlington College at a salary of $160,000, and she received a severance package of roughly $200,000 when she retired. The Sanders’ also own three homes, with a combined estimated value of at least $1.5 million.

While Sanders is not required to disclose all of his investments and holdings as a public official, based on past income statements and other public information, the combined $2.4 million net worth of the Sanders household is our educated guess at their current assets. Because Bernie Sanders owns half of that money and property, we estimate his individual net worth at $1.2 million.
