What is Bernie Sanders’ net worth?

Q. How much is Bernie Sanders’ net worth?

Adam answers:

Bernie Sanders has an estimated net worth of about $1 million.

Being a U.S. Senator is a pretty good gig — Sanders makes $174,000 per year just to represent Vermont in the Senate.

Bernie’s wife Jane Sanders has also done well — she is retired, but was president of Burlington College at a salary of $160,000. She got a $200,000 severance package when she left the school.

Together Bernie & Jane Sanders own three homes, with a value of between $1 million and $2 million. Since one of these homes is a recent purchase, I assume it’s not paid off, so their equity in these homes is less than the homes’ full value.

All that said, the Sanders’ probably have about a $2 million net worth between them. Since Bernie is entitled to half of that, his net worth should be about $1 million.
