Deep Pockets

Context #1

Tom: Did you hear about the new class action law suit against the Paypal?
Chris: Yeah, but big companies like that don't care.  
Tom: You're right. They have such deep pockets that they can just pay people and move on.

Context #2

Jennifer: I heard that Sarah's company is sending all the employees on a free cruise to Hawaii.
Kathy: Yeah I know!  But don't worry.  Her company has really deep pockets. They can afford it!

Meaning: to have deep pockets is an idiom used mainly for a company or corporation. It means that they have massive, almost limitless, financial resources.
