I do now! I wasn't paying much attention to this stuff until recently.

One would think so. In fact, I've called two local full-fee brokers to ask about this and gotten exactly nowhere. Perhaps I shouldn't even have bothered with them and gone straight to the discounters.

Bummer. I'd been hoping to save around $1,500 a month. Should I assume my best bet is to go ahead and roll the 403(b) into an IRA and continue annual $2,000 deposits but set up a new account as well (which will not be tax deferred)?
