I'm considering a phenomenally generous job offer, and curious how the rulings on a 403(b) might affect things if I want to come back to my current job. If I transfer my 403(b) to an IRA once I've left, does the IRS care if my current employer re-hires me and I start a new 403(b)? That could look like I was trying to evade the restrictions on the 403(b). Is there a re-hire time, any restriction on when I can re-enroll in a new 403(b), or anything like that? Does it matter if I leave the account where it is, leave it in a seperate IRA, or mix it with another IRA?

Also, has anyone out there left a wonderful job for triple pay elsewhere or any similar consideration? The new job has routine work but reasonable hours and fantastic pay (not too good to be true since I really am worth that much given their needs), while the old job has fantastic & fun projects but the pay is nothing to get excited about. I lean toward taking the money for a few years but would like to hear from those who have tried a similar job change.
