Former state school employee Jan Scocchera, who retired in June 2018, saved $142,928 toward a pension over 35 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Scocchera would collect as much as $3.89 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Lake County Gazette.

The projection assumes Scocchera received $81,744 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Scocchera will have already received $165,940 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
