David Sokol of MidAmerican Holdings Company speaks during the Ira W. Sohn investment research conference in New York

David Sokol, who left Berkshire Hathaway (>> Berkshire Hathaway Inc.) last year amid a scandal over his stock trading while at the company, would receive about $1 million in retirement payments every year, according to a regulatory filing.

David Sokol, who left Berkshire Hathaway (>> Berkshire Hathaway Inc.) last year amid a scandal over his stock trading while at the company, would receive about $1 million in retirement payments every year, according to a regulatory filing.

Sokol received $750,000 in 2011 as part of supplemental executive retirement plan, or SERP, the filing showed.

"Sokol's post-termination SERP benefit is $1 million annually, paid in monthly installments. He elected a one-time lump sum payment of his MidAmerican Energy Company Retirement Plan benefit of $301,687, which was paid to him on May 1, 2011," MidAmerican said in the filing.

Sokol, who once chaired Berkshire's MidAmerican Energy unit, ran its NetJets plane leasing unit, and was a top Warren Buffett deal maker, was considered a leading contender to succeed Buffett as Berkshire's chief executive.

However, last year Buffett said Sokol had violated Berkshire insider trading rules by failing to disclose his purchase of Lubrizol shares, less than four weeks after starting talks with Citigroup Inc (>> Citigroup Inc.) bankers about the company.

Buffett told investors on Saturday the Berkshire board has identified his successor as chief executive, but did not disclose who.

Sokol received $231,250 as base salary in 2011 and his total compensation for the year amounted to $10.4 million, including a $10.1 million change in pension value, the latest filing showed.
