By Local Labs News Service | Jan 1, 2018


Former school nurse Bonnie Smith, who retired in December 2017, saved $49,093 toward a pension over 9 years working for public schools, Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Smith would collect as much as $716,529, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Smith received $15,060 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, Smith will have already received $63,005 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
