A tax sheltered annuity (TSA) is an annuity purchased within a 403b plan. You will find a discussion of that in my Foolish Retirement Plan Primer available in our Retirement area at http://www.fool.com/Retirement/Retirement.htm . A 403b plan may be invested in only annuities and/or mutual funds, and such contributions may not be used to purchase individual securities such as stocks and bonds. Additionally, while still employed in the job that provides the 403b, your wife's ability to move those funds is extremely limited. The best she could possibly do is move the money to what's called a 403b(7) account with a mutual fund family that accepts 403b money. If her employer makes a matching contribution of any kind, then she won't even be able to that. Additionally, if she actually has an annuity, then there are other issues involved such as surrender fees for terminating the annuity contract to move the money elsewhere. That issue would have to be examined carefully prior to moving any money as well.

Regards..Pixy
