Former state university employee Teresita Diaz Lewis, who retired in July 2017, saved $82,487 toward a pension over 23 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Diaz Lewis would collect as much as $1.58 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Diaz Lewis received $33,174 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Diaz Lewis will have already received $102,537 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
