What types of products can be used to fund 403b and 457?

Typically, 403(b) and 457(b) plans offer two types of investment products – annuities and mutual funds. An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company that requires the insurer to make payment to you, either immediately or in the future.

When can a 403b be rolled into an IRA?

If you change jobs or retire, you can roll over your 403(b) account balance into a traditional individual retirement account (IRA). If you go to a new job that offers a 401(k) savings plan, you may be able to transfer the balance of your 403(b) account into it.

Can a 403 B annuity be rolled into an IRA?

Rolling Over an Annuity to an IRA Several employer retirement plans come in the form of a variable annuity contract such as a 457 or 403(b) plan, especially in the public sector. 56 When people change jobs, they can still roll over one of these tax-sheltered annuities to a traditional IRA tax-free.

What is better a 403b or 457?
