Former school counselor Joan O'Connor, who retired in March 2016, saved $63,350 toward a pension over 10 years working for public schools, Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, O'Connor would collect as much as $911,053, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes O'Connor received $19,149 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, O'Connor will have already received $80,111 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
