Former state school employee Suzann Bailey, who retired in June 2017, saved $8,297 toward a pension over 2 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Bailey would collect as much as $235,789, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Prairie State Wire.

The projection assumes Bailey received $4,956 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Bailey will have already received $10,061 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
