Former state school employee Steven Liston, who retired in April 2016, saved $66,440 toward a pension over 23 years working for public schools, Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois records show.

Over 30 years of retirement, Liston would collect as much as $1.19 million, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS), which publishes SE Illinois News.

The projection assumes Liston received $24,911 in the first year of retirement, then 3 percent annual increases thereafter, compounded.

After 3 years of retirement, Liston will have already received $76,997 in retirement benefits, or more than the sum total of the retiree's contributions to the teachers' pension fund.
