What can I do with my 403(b) if I am retiring early?

I have a 403(b) that I invest $100 a month in. I can retire from the public school system in 9 years at age 46. I do not want to take any money out of my 403(b), but I want to be able to continue contributing to the account so it will continue to grow. Can I roll it over into something when I retire? I'm pretty sure I will not be able to continue contributions since I will no longer be a non-profit employee.

That is amazing retiring at 46!!!!   You can rollover your 403b to an IRA.  You won't be able to contribute to your 403b if you are no longer working as a teacher.  If you are working elsewhere you may have access to a retirement plan there or you can contribute to the IRA where you rolled your 403b over to.


Here is some helpful info on the other types of retirement accounts out there:
