Former state school employee Michele McIlrath, who retired in June 2016, saved $14,039 toward a pension over 6 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, McIlrath would collect as much as $311,285, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes North Cook News.

The projection assumes McIlrath received $6,543 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, McIlrath will have already received $20,223 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
