Maybe this should be posted on the Foolish question board, but...
In the '80s, I opened an IRA with an annuity from Kemper an agent sold me. I transferred this to a 3 variable annuity funds from Fidelity a few years ago, to get a better return, at least. Not too savvy, then, and not much now but getting better reading the Fool. My question: how do I go about trasferring these annuities, equal to a little over $10,000, into another vehicle in the IRA? I understand now that an annuity in an IRA is redundant, in terms of tax shelter, but I'd like to improve my returns with less expenses. I'd appreciate any advice, thanks.
