PP sez:

<<Pixy - the plan may restrict the transfer of "employer" funds, but the employee funds are 100% vested from the get-go. Therefore, the employee may use Rule 90-24 to make partial transfers to another 403b account! It's a bit of paperwork! And if the original contribution was into a TSA there would be surrender fees/a mutual fund may have a load (back-end) to consider... >>

Thanks. That's the answer I was looking for. Thus, the employee may transfer any contributions the employee makes. I would also assume any earnings as well. And, yes, it would be a hassle. Still, that's a small price to pay for a better return elsewhere.
