Former state university employee David Nielsen, who retired in December 2017, saved $7,218 toward a pension over 6 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Nielsen would collect as much as $510,959, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Nielsen received $10,740 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 1 years of retirement, Nielsen will have already received $10,740 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
