Former state university employee Brandy Starsky, who retired in January 2019, saved $70,230 toward a pension over 21 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Starsky would collect as much as $1.31 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Starsky received $27,552 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Starsky will have already received $85,161 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
