More than 300 ACC employees are being paid in excess of $100,000 a year, according to its annual report.
The highest paid earner, who the state insurer said was not departing chief executive Ralph Stewart, received up to $760,000. The insurer declined to name who that earner was.
The report shows 330 employees are earning more than $100,000 a year - an 18 per cent increase on the previous period. The average salary of the top earners (between $100,000 and $760,000) was $155,000.
Ten employees are on more than $500,000 per year - four more than last year, and 29 are being paid between $200,000 and $400,000 a year. The average annual wage for New Zealanders is about $50,000.
In the last year ACC also paid $1,314,584 in redundacy - up from the $578,949 paid to 24 staff in 2011.
ACC has been under fire for most of this year after a massive privacy breach, and has been plagued by leaks, wild allegations, inquiries and resignations.
Former minister Nick Smith was forced to resign his portfolios and new minister Judith Collins had a clear out of the board.
New board chair Paula Rebstock used a foreword in the report to apologise to the 6700 clients whose privacy was breached.
''ACC must show its stakeholders that change is occurring, that we are reasoning quickly and that we can demonstrate that people's personal information is being treated with the care it deserves.''
Stewart wrote that the revelations about the privacy scandal was a ''defining moment'' for ACC. A survey showed public confidence in the insurer fell from 58 per cent to 49 per cent.
The report also showed ACC accepted 1.7 million new claims over the year. Total claim payments were $2.6b - or just over $7m per day.
* An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported chief executive Ralph Stewart was paid up to $760,000. The current 2012 remuneration of the chief executive is between $390,000-$399,999.
