financial perks of being the president of the United States

Presidents and their immediate family are American icons and their legacies are preserved after death. When an immediate presidential family member dies, they are honored with a state funeral, which is reserved for heads of state. A state funeral can last for 7 to 10 days and is a three-stage event with full military honours. The presidential family gets a military escort and flyover with a 21-gun salute, according to CBS News.
