Simpson also acted in several TV shows and films so he is also due a pension from the Screen Actors Guild.

In 1997 Simpson was found liable in a civil suit for the wrongful deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, after being acquitted of criminal charges.

He was ordered to pay $33.5 million to the victim's families, however pensions are protected and cannot be seized by creditors.

Upon his release from prison officials were unaware of OJ Simpson's choice for a new residents although it is believed he will return to Florida, where he has lived since the late 1990s.
