Former state university employee Diane Galeener, who retired in November 2018, saved $6,718 toward a pension over 6 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Galeener would collect as much as $164,021, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Galeener received $3,447 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Galeener will have already received $6,997 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
