Former state university employee Athanasia Koutsouris, who retired in September 2018, saved $58,333 toward a pension over 21 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Koutsouris would collect as much as $928,811, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Koutsouris received $19,522 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Koutsouris will have already received $60,341 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
