Former state university employee Beverly Poindexter, who retired in January 2018, saved $66,697 toward a pension over 30 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Poindexter would collect as much as $1.5 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Poindexter received $31,454 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Poindexter will have already received $97,222 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
