I think you nailed it on the head. I have some retirement savings but giving up the 25% tax saving seems like a bad idea. I'm also thinking as my income rises and I can't shelter any more income in either 401K's or ROTH's then I'll be forced to investing outside my 401K / ROTH. I did look at my current expenses. Between pension (21%), Mortgage (23%) and a collage funds (6%) I'm spending about half my income on expenses that will disappear in retirement. I know I'll have some additional expenses but these are unlikely to make up the difference.I mostly enjoy my job, so my thought is that I'm more likely to go part time that retire early. Going part time also avoid taking a big hit of the defined benefit plan.Jonathan
