Former state school employee Michael Garnant, who retired in October 2018, saved $3,507 toward a pension over 2 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Garnant would collect as much as $64,803, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Lake County Gazette.

The projection assumes Garnant received $1,362 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Garnant will have already received $4,210 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
