Former state school employee Mary Yard, who retired in May 2016, saved $176,443 toward a pension over 33 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Yard would collect as much as $3.31 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes Will County Gazette.

The projection assumes Yard received $69,626 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Yard will have already received $215,207 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
