In 2017, Pence’s sole source of income was his approximately $174,000 salary as governor of Indiana. His wife is listed as the owner of craft business That’s My Towel Charm, Inc. and as a self-employed artist, but her work on each generated less than $1,000.

Much of Mike Pence’s $2 million net worth comes from a pension plan, valued between $500,001 and $1 million. He also has two other retirement accounts worth up to $30,000 combined. Like many American parents, Pence has taken student loans out to fund his children’s education. The student loans total somewhere between about $95,000 and $280,000.

Mike Pence Political Career

Mike Pence entered the realm of politics in 2000, becoming a state representative for Indiana at the age of 40. He managed to be elected to his post six times, believing in a platform of “limited government, fiscal responsibility, economic development, educational opportunity and the U.S. Constitution,” according to his official White House biography.

In 2013, Pence stepped down from his post on Capitol Hill and moved back to Indiana — taking office as the 50th governor of the Hoosier State. He eventually returned to D.C. in 2017, but this time with a new address — Pennsylvania Avenue — thanks to his role as second in command behind President Donald Trump.
