Former state university employee Barbara Golden, who retired in July 2018, saved $510 toward a pension over 2 years working for state universities, State Universities Retirement System of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Golden would collect as much as $11,989, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Will County Gazette.

The projection assumes Golden received $252 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 2 years of retirement, Golden will have already received $512 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the state pension fund.
