By Local Labs News Service | Feb 1, 2018

Former state university employee Phyllis Little, who retired in January 2018, saved $73,437 toward a pension over 33 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Little would collect as much as $2.09 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Little received $43,876 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Little will have already received $89,068 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
