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.
OY! Tough call.
Your comment about your foolish co-workers cracked me up!
