    Although often cited as one of the poster children for outrageous state employee pensions, the average retired state employee pension in Illinois is actually only $26,663.00 per year, and half of those employees are not eligible for social security, because the pension is intended to replace it. The real culprits in Illinois pensions are with retired state judges who average $104,000.00 per year and with state legislator pensions that average approximately $41,000.00 per year for a part-time position after only 14 years in office. Illinois’ real pension problem actually is not the result of exceedingly high average employee pensions but stems from the long-standing and still current practise of using pension funds to pay yearly ongoing operating expenses. Illinois’ real problem is not average employee pensions but an ongoing culture of political corruption that diverts money from paying bills to paying off politicians. It always has been.
