Former state university employee Carole Blass, who retired in March 2019, saved $46,041 toward a pension over 15 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Blass would collect as much as $585,177, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Lake County Gazette.

The projection assumes Blass received $12,300 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 4 years of retirement, Blass will have already received $51,458 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
