Former state university employee Sarah McDougal, who retired in April 2018, saved $84,933 toward a pension over 26 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, McDougal would collect as much as $1.43 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes McDougal received $29,979 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, McDougal will have already received $92,661 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
