I would disagree - possibly. In an IRA, while you probably have no admin fees, virtually everything you buy will be at retail (mutual funds). In the plan, they could (should) be institutional funds and priced much lower (offsetting any admin fees paid by the plan from participant accounts or earnings). Bottom line, look before you leap.
