Former state school employee Mary Brim, who retired in May 2018, saved $169,303 toward a pension over 31 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Brim would collect as much as $3.3 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes South Cook News.

The projection assumes Brim received $69,365 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Brim will have already received $214,400 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
