Former state school employee Linda Lemons, who retired in May 2016, saved $121,720 toward a pension over 37 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Lemons would collect as much as $2.41 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes SE Illinois News.

The projection assumes Lemons received $50,671 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Lemons will have already received $156,619 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
