As a new "Fool" I would appreciate any advice re. the following:


As a teacher, set aside for Retirement savings, I have a 403(b) account (with =no= employer $ match) and also a Roth IRA. Which is my =most= important savings vehicle: the 403b (funded by pre-tax dollars), or, the Roth (funded with after-tax dollars)? I need to prioritize, since I am presently unable to "max" both accounts each year.

* Each account is in a different mutual fund, and, I plan to retire in approx. 17 years.

Thanks for the advice & input.
