Subject:  pension vs credit card debt? please help Date:  1/20/2000  3:50 PM
Author:  curly123 Number:  18034 of 88504

Hello fool gurus:
I have about $ 9,500 (100% vested) in my previous employers pension plan.

I have about $ 10,000 in credit card loans at 4% apr.

My question is
(1) should I take out the pension money and finish up up credit card debt.

(2) If I take out the money how much (approximate percentage) would I lose in penalties and taxes (filing jointly, annual gross income- $ 80,000)

Thank you for your advice
