Be very, very careful here. Trust me, I have experienced and completely understand your plight. But make SURE you have a gig before you leave - milk that job search while getting paid for as absolutely long as you can because you gotta know - there are absolutely NO guarantees that you can get hired for ANYTHING out there right now. If you are financially prepared and the stress is making you ill, then maybe, but otherwise, keep fighting the fight until you land something. And SAVE. Thank God I did. It took me a LONG time after I got laid off to find something. I had a lot of false starts and missteps, etc etc etc. Even if you are financially gonna be ok for a while, it is a soul sucking, humiliating experience trying to find a job in this market. Thankfully I am trending up. Take their money, do as little as you can to keep your job, down size your life now before you get that call cuz, believe me, NO ONE is getting so much as an automated response from an HR department. You have to know someone. The more experience you have, the more of a liability it is, too. Keep that job while you have it, fight the good fight, find something on land.
