WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Hillary Clinton will be raking in the money on the speaking circuit.

BuzzFeed reports that the former secretary of state will be getting upwards of $200,000 per speaking appearance, more than her annual salary of $186,000 running the State Department.

Clinton will be represented by Manhattan-based Harry Walker Agency.

The agency represents high-profile figures who give paid speeches to organizations, conferences and companies. Its roster includes Clinton’s husband and the former president, Bill Clinton; former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan; and Bono of the band U2.

It is not uncommon for prominent former public figures to join the lucrative speech circuit after leaving office. According to Senate disclosure forms Hillary Clinton filed in 2008, Bill Clinton has been paid as much as $290,000 per speech.

Representatives for the Harry Walker Agency and Clinton did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
