Former state university employee Charles Currier, who retired in August 2018, saved $191,637 toward a pension over 12 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Currier would collect as much as $3.24 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes DuPage Policy Journal.

The projection assumes Currier received $68,020 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Currier will have already received $210,244 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
