Former state school employee Mary Fulton, who retired in June 2018, saved $93,480 toward a pension over 26 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Fulton would collect as much as $1.82 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Fulton received $38,210 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Fulton will have already received $118,103 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
