Former state university employee Brian Thomas, who retired in January 2016, saved $303,928 toward a pension over 31 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Thomas would collect as much as $7.21 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Thomas received $151,535 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Thomas will have already received $307,616 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
