Former state school employee Leslie Orlow, who retired in September 2016, saved $200,509 toward a pension over 31 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Orlow would collect as much as $3.63 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes DuPage Policy Journal.

The projection assumes Orlow received $76,335 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Orlow will have already received $235,944 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
