Former state university employee Stephen Tosch, who retired in December 2017, saved $33,849 toward a pension over 9 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Tosch would collect as much as $428,812, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Chicago City Wire.

The projection assumes Tosch received $9,013 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, Tosch will have already received $37,705 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
