>>What are the major/important differences between 401k and 403b plans? (i know that 403b is for non-profit organizations but are there any other differences?)<<>>>The short, not completely accurate but good enough for index fund investing people, answer is...not much.<<<And if the President's proposal in the 05 budget goes through, the completely accurate answer will be: Nothing. In addition to the LSAs and RSAs proposed, their is a proposal to turn all employee sponsered plans into "Employer Retirement Savings Accounts", or ERSAs (based of the 401k, but supposedly less restrive). From the press release:"...The proposal would consolidate 401(k), SIMPLE 401(k), 403(b), and 457 employer-based defined contribution accounts into a single type of plan more easily established by any employer..."The entire press release covering LSAs, RSAs, ERSAs and IDAs is located here: http://www.treas.gov/press/releases/js1131.htm-Joe
