Former state school employee Christine Tapling, who retired in June 2017, saved $106,860 toward a pension over 23 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Tapling would collect as much as $2.36 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes DuPage Policy Journal.

The projection assumes Tapling received $49,524 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Tapling will have already received $153,074 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
