Former state university employee James Herndon, who retired in September 2018, saved $24,625 toward a pension over 10 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Herndon would collect as much as $433,887, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Herndon received $9,120 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Herndon will have already received $28,190 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
