|University of Illinois at Chicago|
From Fox 32 Chicago:
A retired doctor who worked for the state for less than five years is now collecting a pension of more than $150,000 per year.Hartz worked as doctor for the University of Illinois at Chicago in the 1990s.
Critics said it's a perfect example of why Illinois' pension system is broke. However, the doctor is firing back saying don't blame the retirees getting the money.
"I feel blessed. I don't feel as though I've milked the system or anything like that," said Dr. Renee Hartz.
Hartz has drawn lots of attention over the years for her trailblazing career as a cardiac surgeon. Now, she's drawn the attention of pension expert Bill Zettler, who literally wrote the book on Illinois' broken pension system.
