Subject: Pensions
Source: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Date: Sept. 4


The St. Louis Post-Dispatch found severe problems within the Illinois pension system, including that some checks go to prisons and that the state's double-dippers get their pensions and their pay. Additionally, they found that an Illinois legislator and a state worker who each retire with a $40,000 annual salary and 20 years on the job get widely disparate pensions.
