Former special education worker Deborah Sanchez, who retired in February 2019, saved $146,945 toward a pension over 32 years working for public schools, Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Sanchez would collect as much as $3.21 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Sanchez received $67,431 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Sanchez will have already received $208,423 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
