Former state university employee Jamila Rashid, who retired in April 2018, saved $124,327 toward a pension over 14 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Rashid would collect as much as $2.77 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Rashid received $58,207 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Rashid will have already received $179,912 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
