Hoytinak,

Don't know your age or circumstance. But 10 yrs is really not all that much more to go when the benefits are figured in. The private sector has all but done away with pensions. The 401K has replaced them at a lot of employers. And medical costs are going through the roof. That alone would make hanging in for the last 10 worth it. When I retire in a few years, our house will be paid off, but medical insurance will be so high, it will simply take the place of a house payment. Getting out, you'd be at square 1 at any new job. Probably not going to enjoy it any more than where you are now. And look at 20-30 yrs for full retirement benefits ( whatever they might be ).

My $.02
