Former state university employee Adeline Smith, who retired in January 2019, saved $12,606 toward a pension over 13 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Smith would collect as much as $191,253, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes DuPage Policy Journal.

The projection assumes Smith received $4,020 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, Smith will have already received $16,819 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
