Former state university employee Elizabeth Latimer, who retired in January 2016, saved $10,992 toward a pension over 9 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Latimer would collect as much as $567,633, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Latimer received $11,931 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 1 years of retirement, Latimer will have already received $11,931 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
