Former state school employee Beth Cohen, who retired in June 2016, saved $154,086 toward a pension over 28 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Cohen would collect as much as $3.1 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes North Cook News.

The projection assumes Cohen received $65,086 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Cohen will have already received $201,175 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
