Former state school employee Darren Ropp, who retired in June 2016, saved $138,232 toward a pension over 34 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Ropp would collect as much as $2.77 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Sangamon Sun.

The projection assumes Ropp received $58,133 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Ropp will have already received $179,683 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
