Former state university employee David Gooler, who retired in January 2018, saved $95,242 toward a pension over 27 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Gooler would collect as much as $1.72 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Gooler received $36,196 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Gooler will have already received $111,878 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
