NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Connecticut’s attorney general says documents turned over to his office by American International Group shows the company paid out $218 million in bonuses, higher than the $165 million previously disclosed.
Attorney General Richard Blumenthal’s office received the AIG documents late Friday after issuing a subpoena.
Blumenthal says the documents show that 73 people received at least $1 million apiece, and five of those got bonuses of more than $4 million.
The financially ailing insurance giant has been under fire for giving bonuses after receiving more than $182.5 billion in federal bailout money.
AIG spokesman Mark Herr declined to comment.
Blumenthal said the newly revealed number will “further fuel the justified anger and revulsion that people feel.”
