Dr. Anthony Fauci has been on the federal payroll for 55 years and he currently has no plans to retire, but when he does, a new analysis of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases director’s records shows he will get the largest pension in the U.S. government history.
“Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com estimate Dr. Fauci’s annual retirement would exceed $350,000. Thereafter, his pension and benefits would continue to increase through annual cost-of-living adjustments. Fauci has 55 years of service as a federal employee,” reports Adam Andrzejewski, founder, and president of the Illinois-based foundation that boasts of posting “every dime in real-time” of government spending at all levels in the United States.
Fauci’s career began at the National Institutes for Health in 1966, as part of an intramural research program known as the Yellow Berets. Then, after serving 18 months as Chief Resident at the New York Hospital Cornell Medical Center, Fauci went back to NIH as a top investigator. In 1984, Fauci was named director of the NIAID, his present job. The NIAID is part of NIH.
“For the second year in a row, Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out-earned the president, four-star generals, and roughly 4.3 million of his colleagues. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019,” Andrzejewski said.
