Former state university employee Carol Courtney, who retired in July 2018, saved $108,280 toward a pension over 15 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Courtney would collect as much as $1.55 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Courtney received $32,534 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, Courtney will have already received $136,109 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
