More than 40 years after his passing, fans of Elvis Presley still claim to see him walking the earth. While that may seem bizarre to some, what’s more outrageous is the fact that he’s still earning $40 million per year in death.

In some cases, they may actually earn more posthumously than when they were alive and active!
For example, in 2018, entertainer Michael Jackson’s estate earned $825 million USD. This infographic from TitleMax.com explores more than 20 of the top-earning deceased celebrities over the past 5 years.
