The Juice is loose…and about to collect a hefty pension.

Thursday, O.J. Simpson was granted parole and will be released from Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center as early as October 1. While details on what inmate number 1027820 will do as a free man are hazy, he’s financially set.

Sports Illustrated reports that Simpson’s NFL pension could pay him upwards of $25,000 per month.

And earlier this week, Carl Douglas, one of Simpson’s attorneys from the ’95 trial told CBS News, “There is another pension as well that he gets from the Screen Actors Guild.”

Simpson has also said that upon release, he wants to head south and take up residence in Florida, and it’s not just because of the warm weather. According to Florida state law, some of his assets will be off-limits from creditors and the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman— whom he is required to pay 33.5 million dollars. Whatever is in the home he buys in Florida is safe, as opposed to him buying a home in California, which would allow the families of the deceased rights to the house’s equity.

Simpson might lie low and stay out of the limelight for a while, but best believe he has a bag.
