Bank of America paid Moynihan a salary of $950,000 and no bonus for 2012, both the same as in 2011. He was given stock last year valued at $5.9 million, down from $6.1 million. He also received $520,513 in perks like use of corporate aircraft.

The pay package also includes nearly $40,000 in above-market returns tied to a deferred compensation plan.
