Who Are/Were The Richest Presidents

Posted: Updated:

It may not pay to be president while in office, but it certainly pays after leaving!

Four years ago, "24-7 Wall Street" published a list of the net worth of every American president. They have updated the figures ever year.

President Obama's estimated net worth is $7.5 million, but that doesn't even rival the top five:

1. George Washington, first president

Net worth: $525 million

2. Thomas Jefferson, third president

Net worth $212 million

3. Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president

Net worth $125 million

4. Andrew Jackson, seventh president

Net worth $119 million

5. James Madison, fourth president

Net worth $101 million

Former President Bill Clinton made the list at 9.
