Former state university employee Cherise Lynn, who retired in January 2019, saved $95,840 toward a pension over 31 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Lynn would collect as much as $1.93 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Lynn received $40,488 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Lynn will have already received $125,145 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
