By Local Labs News Service | Feb 1, 2016


Former state university employee Susan Cole, who retired in January 2016, saved $107,272 toward a pension over 17 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Cole would collect as much as $1.78 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Cole received $37,396 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Cole will have already received $115,588 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
