The International Monetary Fund has confirmed to CBS News that former chief and accused rapist Dominique Strauss-Kahn will receive a one-time severance payment of $287,287 -- 65 percent of his annual salary of $441,980.

From that point forward it estimated that Strauss-Kahn will receive 11 percent of his former salary each year -- a pension payment of $48,617 annually.

However, IMF representatives stress that that figure is only an estimate and are working to identify the exact amount Strauss-Kahn will receive.

Strauss-Kahn resigned from the IMF Wednesday while being held at New York's Rikers Island correctional facility after allegedly sexually assaulting a chambermaid at a Manhattan hotel. He was indicted on the charges Thursday and was granted $1 million bail on the condition he a strictly monitored home confinement. He has proclaimed his innocence and attorneys say he will plead not guilty to all charges.
