By Local Labs News Service | May 1, 2018


Former state school employee Lori Shurtz, who retired in April 2018, saved $27,731 toward a pension over 9 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Shurtz would collect as much as $1.05 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Prairie State Wire.

The projection assumes Shurtz received $22,167 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Shurtz will have already received $44,999 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
