Former state university employee Donna Wilson, who retired in January 2016, saved $78,168 toward a pension over 23 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Wilson would collect as much as $2.43 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Wilson received $50,992 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Wilson will have already received $103,514 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
