Former state university employee Marinella Long, who retired in February 2019, saved $221,349 toward a pension over 25 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Long would collect as much as $3.8 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Long received $79,872 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Long will have already received $246,876 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
