Former state university employee Judith Reardon, who retired in September 2018, saved $21,554 toward a pension over 9 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Reardon would collect as much as $1.01 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Reardon received $21,273 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Reardon will have already received $43,184 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
