If we vote to opt out, what my agency would pay to SS will go into a 401K type thing. I will get the $$ I pay into SS in my paycheck. Then I have to decide if I want to invest it.

Some of these fools I work with, think it's going to be a raise. Hello? This is your retirement. You can't spend it all.
Maybe you should ask Leslie to ask her DH about this. The City of Arlington has been out of SS for a long time. The retirement plan is through TMRS (Texas Municipal Retirement System) and they have a 401K and a 457 plan too. As far as I know it's a good thing.
