Sarah Palin Net Worth - Since quitting her job as governor in Alaska, a lot of people wonder how much Sarah Palin is now worth. Of course, there's more to the story about Palin with former reports saying she was fired instead. So how much did Palin receive during her days as Alaska's governor?

According to the Richest, Sarah Palin's net worth is at $12 million. The former governor of Alaska wasn't all that much into politics during her younger days. Surprisingly, in the year 1984 she had joined a beauty competition and won the Miss Wasilla Pageant. Palin also won third place and the award for Miss Congeniality for Miss Alaska.

After a quick run in the beauty competitions, Palin focused on her education and earned her bachelor's degree in communication at the University of Idaho. By the year 1992, Palin earned a spot in the Wasilla City Council before becoming mayor in 1996. Of course, much of Sarah Palin's net worth has stemmed from her job as Governor of Alaska in the year 2006.

Palin was the first woman and the youngest at that to gain the position of governor. Yet, Sarah Palin's net worth, much of which she earned from being governor, appeared not to be enough. By 2008, Palin ran for Vice President alongside presidential hopeful, John McCain. Unluckily, both lost.

Now, Palin has resigned from her job as governor to Alaska and has taken up a spot with FOX News. Financial details of the multi-year contract certainly must have done wonders for Sarah Palin's net worth. A report by Politics Us USA has a different story however with regards to Palin's salary and allegedly being fired off the show.

With or without a job, Sarah Palin's net worth remains to be at millions especially after she earned $7 million from her book, "Going Rogue." A report from Forbes nonetheless still claims Palin earns less than what everyone thinks.
