If I am no longer employed, can I roll over a 403(b) plan into an IRA?
50% of people found this answer helpful

It is very typical to rollover your 403(b) after your have terminated service with your employer. However, there are other considerations you need to evaluate before you make the jump into an IRA.

It is very important to know what your 403(b) is currently invested in. Is it in a fixed or variable annuity? Is it invested directly with a mutual fund company? I wrote an article that goes into more detail on this called HOW 403(B) AND 457 PLANS WORK TOGETHER.

If it’s invested in some type of annuity, you need to be sure you’re not subject to surrender charges. It is quite common for annuities to have charges that apply when you move your funds out of the contract. These surrender periods can last many years and can be in excess of 8%.

You also need to carefully evaluate where your funds are going. What type of IRA will it be? Are you going to invest in stocks, mutual funds, or invest in an annuity? Will you be working with an advisor or a broker who is selling financial products?

Just because you can rollover to an IRA, it doesn’t mean you should. Before you make the leap, read this article 403B PLANS AND WHAT TEACHERS NEED TO KNOW.

Please note that this should not be considered investment advice and is only educational in nature. Please be sure to consult with your own legal, tax, or investment advisor regarding your specific situation.

Best of luck!
