Former state university employee Kathleen Ceranec, who retired in September 2018, saved $149,038 toward a pension over 31 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Ceranec would collect as much as $2.82 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Ceranec received $59,304 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Ceranec will have already received $183,302 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
