<<I left the employer a few years ago. The contract has no surrender penalties if I have left the employer. I am looking for a plan that will allow me to pick the stocks rather than having to go with some unknown mutual fund. How do I go about transferring and finding a different plan? >>Choose a (discount) broker: http://boards.fool.com/Messages.asp?bid=100146. Tell them that you want to roll your 403(b)into an IRA, they will do all the work for you. I chose TD Waterhouse because they do not charge fees for IRAs or have minimums for them. At that point, you are able to choose what stocks you want to buy.Whether or not to convert your Roll-over to a Roth IRA is a personal decision (I decided against it, and opened a separate account and put all new IRA contributions into a Roth. I now have 2 IRAs and I have fun competing different strategies in them).I hope this helpsTTMan
