Former state school employee Pamela Schoessow, who retired in April 2018, saved $36,558 toward a pension over 11 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Schoessow would collect as much as $576,722, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Lake County Gazette.

The projection assumes Schoessow received $12,122 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Schoessow will have already received $37,469 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
