Can I rollover my 403(b) to a low-cost index fund?
33% of people found this answer helpful

Low-cost index funds come in both mutual fund format and ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) format. Both should be available in a Rollover IRA. Most discount brokerage firms, such as Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Fidelity, and Scottrade, will allow you to purchase most types of mutual funds and ETFs.

As long as you are moving your assets directly from the 403(b) into a Rollover IRA, you should not have any tax issues. Tax issues arise when you actually take a hold of the money after it leaves the 403(b). Make sure your rollover is a trustee-to-trustee (custodian to custodian) rollover. Most discount brokerage firms also offer incentives for rolling over workplace retirement accounts.
