Former state school employee Elizabeth Schwartz, who retired in June 2016, saved $160,839 toward a pension over 29 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Schwartz would collect as much as $3.58 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes North Cook News.

The projection assumes Schwartz received $75,254 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Schwartz will have already received $232,603 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
