I'm amazed at the activity and knowledge on this board! I am sure someone will be able to answer a question for me that I have been unable to find anywhere.

I have been very disappointed with the performance of the mutual funds in my wife's 403b account. I would like to rollover the account into an IRA and then convert it to a self-directed Roth IRA. I did this with some old 401k and 403b accounts, and am very happy I did.

My question is this... Can my wife rollover the 403b account that she is currently contributing to, and is managed by her current employer? My gut instinct is that she probably has to wait until she leaves this employer.

Thanks much,
