What is a 403(b)?

The 403(b) is similar to the 401(k), but it is typically offered to employees of educational institutions and non-profit organziations. 403(b)s most often take the form of annuity contracts or mutual fund custodial accounts and are also known as “tax-sheltered annuity (TSA) plans.”
