Former state university employee Barbra Baschleben, who retired in January 2018, saved $106,379 toward a pension over 30 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Baschleben would collect as much as $2.43 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Baschleben received $50,978 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Baschleben will have already received $157,567 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
