<<Assuming this is an old 403b plan from a prior employer, there shouldn't be any reason you cannot surrender the TSA and have the net proceeds transferred to a self-directed IRA at the broker of your choice.>>

From the other, I can only roll out my own contributions. Thanks to the custodian's rules, both of these can only be rolled out 10%/yr over a 10 yr period.
