No, the index fund could be one of the investment options housed within the VA. The VA as such is simply a tax wrapper. It houses the individual investment options. There is no contradiction here. The funding vehicle in your 403(b) appears to be a VA. Nothing strange about that. The 403(b) designation allows you to invest on a pre-tax basis. The tax deferral on your investments is a great plus for this portion of your asset accumulation plans. Don't make some kind of mystery of this that doesn't exist. There could be less here than meets the eye.On the other hand, if you still have questions, keep on posting them. Ignorance is a voluntary misfortune.
