Former teacher and speech pathologist Kathleen Hatfield, who retired in July 2017, saved $109,879 toward a pension over 17 years working for public schools, Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Hatfield would collect as much as $1.61 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Hatfield received $33,757 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, Hatfield will have already received $141,227 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
