<<I hope this helps explain it. Even though there really is no justifiable explanation in my view.>>

Bill, Thanks for the explanation; you've confirmed my suspicions. Red flags started going up as I was looking through the insurance company's (Prudential) literature. The fact that the plan is in variable annuities is not clearly spelled out - instead it is referred to as "variable investments".

My husband works for a smallish company. Is this type of plan cheaper for the employer to administer compared to a 401k offering mutual funds?
