What Is a 403(b) Plan?
A 403(b) plan, also referred to as a tax-sheltered annuity or TSA-plan, is a retirement account that is available to certain public employees. Eligible employees usually include public school employees involved in day-to-day operations. Generally, most teachers and administrators at public schools are eligible for a 403(b) plan.
A 403(b) plan is similar to a 401(k) plan in many ways. Both plans offer tax-advantaged benefits for employees to save for retirement. However, 401(k) plans typically serve private-sector employees.
