By Local Labs News Service | Jan 1, 2018


Former state school employee Susan Johnson, who retired in December 2017, saved $187,836 toward a pension over 22 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Johnson would collect as much as $2.95 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Lake County Gazette.

The projection assumes Johnson received $61,958 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Johnson will have already received $191,507 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
