Former state university employee Candace Tempel, who retired in May 2016, saved $72,001 toward a pension over 20 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Tempel would collect as much as $1.13 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Prairie State Wire.

The projection assumes Tempel received $23,832 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Tempel will have already received $73,662 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
