He cashed out a reported $530 million of his various forms of compensation before the company went bust.

In 2004, Dick and Kathleen paid $13.75 million for a home in Jupiter, Florida. The home sits on 3.3 acres and has 265 feet of ocean frontage. The home itself is just under 15,000 square-feet. In the wake of Lehman's 2008 bankruptcy, he transferred the mansion fully to his wife for $100 to protect it from potential legal actions. They listed this home for sale in early 2021 for $40 million. In May 2021 it was revealed that they had accepted $32.5 million.
