I currently have a variable annuity with Northwestern Mutal Life Ins. The annuity was funded with 401(k) funds I needed to put somewhere after I left two previous jobs. I have not added any additional money to the account, which is currently invested 100% in the Index 500 (S&P 500 tracking fund)option of the NML program. The balance is currently around $10,000. I am self-employed, 35 yrs old, and I would like to start contributing to the account. But this means contributing after-tax dollars with no immediate tax benefits. My question is--Can I take that money from the annuity account and open a new SEP account somewhere else?
