The pension for an ex-president amounts to less than 1/10 of cent per year per person- not really so much compared to other government expenses. In order to run for President, a person has to campaign for many months and often has to leave a high-paying job and all that without any guarantee of being elected. Then if elected, the presidential salary is low for what is expected. Can you imagine Derek Jeter or Taylor Swift working for $400,000 a year ? The offer of financial security seems reasonable to me.
