Former state university employee John Cullars, who retired in January 2016, saved $68,473 toward a pension over 23 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Cullars would collect as much as $2.71 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Cullars received $56,994 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Cullars will have already received $115,698 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
