Medalla earned around P9.3 million as a basic salary, P11.8 million in allowances, and another P11.8 million in bonuses and benefits. Diokno, on the other hand, received P7.6 million in basic salary, P7.2 million in allowances, and the same honorarium as Medalla.

BSP Governors consistently rank highest in this list due to their significant responsibilities and the need to offer competitive compensation to match private sector opportunities.
