By law, George W. Bush will be the 1st president without the luxury of lifetime Secret Service protection after leaving office.

"He'll be the first one to receive Secret Service protection for 10 years," said Malcolm Wiley, Secret Service spokesman.

The almost ex-prez will, however, take full advantage of a Dallas office, covered travel expenses, medical coverage and an annual pension of $196,700.

While under protection, the Bushes will move to their new $2 million, 8,500-square-foot Dallas home on January 20.

Bush will maintain an office nearby in space acquired by the General Services Administration, which, under the Former Presidents Act, will pay for the office suite and staff to assist him for the rest of his life.
