Guinness World Records do not pay any money to those who break or set records. However, they do award an official certificate of the achievement free of charge.
However, after you break a world record, you might get a lot of exposure and sponsors will pay you, so there could be a monetary gain, but not from Guinness world records.

Probably before your time if your in your early 20's. FloJo was a world-class sprinter who was very good for a number of years but wasn't breaking any records.

She showed up at the olympic trials and set a wr that stands to this day of 10.49 in the 100m and then went to the Olympics where she won double gold in the 100m and 200m setting the wr in the 200m of 21.34 that stands today. FloJo was known for her glamorous outfits, six-inch nails, and her beauty. She was dodged by steroid rumors that were never proven.
