Here's what I found out.I don't know how many retirement plans have this option, but if yours does have a "Self Directed Brokerage Account" within the 403b, here's what I was told you have to do.Step 1: Call TIAA-Cref Retirement 800 number and then talk to brokerage. Request a form to be mailed to set up self-directed brokerage account (and mail back).Step 2: After they get the form processed, transfer money into brokerage account.Step 3: Call retirement broker and purchase stuff.Advice: figure out what you are looking for in advance. It is clear the selection of CDs and bonds is weak compared to Vanguard. I'm not interested in individual stocks, so I don't know.
