Hi there...I have a few thousand dollars in a 403b7 account at Merrill Lynch. It started accumulating in 2001 when the market seemed to be going nowhere but down, so it's been sitting in cash (for too long, clearly).

I also have both a rollover IRA (from when I left a previous job) and a 401k account.

My question is this....

Can I roll the 403b7 funds into either the IRA or the 401k without incurring some sort of fine or penalty? Or does it have to go into its own separate account?

If there's a better board for me to post this question to, let me know.

Thanks for your consideration and any help you can offer,
Hillmp

Hi Hillmp, you might want to try posting your question on Tax Strategies

where they are pretty knowledgeable about retirement plans, rollovers, taxation considerations, etc.

You can roll over a 403b to a rollover IRA.

Joelxwil,

I appreciate your response, but can I get a clarification?

Can I roll it (i.e. combine it into) my existing rollover IRA or do I have to roll it into a separate one?

Thanks,
Hillmp
