Former state university employee Russell Hartigan, who retired in February 2017, saved $786 toward a pension over 1 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Hartigan would collect as much as $196,613, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes West Cook News.

The projection assumes Hartigan received $4,132 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 1 years of retirement, Hartigan will have already received $4,132 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
