Former state university employee Pamela Somers, who retired in September 2018, saved $7,783 toward a pension over 12 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Somers would collect as much as $472,589, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Somers received $9,933 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 1 years of retirement, Somers will have already received $9,933 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
