My wife says that our combined DB is equivalent to someone else's 401K of about 3.3Million.(at a 4% withdrawl rate)..

To calculate the value of you pension you can go to an annuity calculator on the Fidelity or Vanguard web site and plug in your numbers (with the inflation adjustment) and find out how much an annuity would cost that yields the same amount. This would be the approximate value of your pensions. I didn't crunch the numbers, but it will probably be much less, probably in the ball park of the amount that you can cash it out for.
