I recently learned of the possibility of transferring funds from a 403(b) account to a 403(b)(7) account that I could open as an individual in a mutual fund of my own choosing if I don't like the 403(b) offerings I'm given (provided the mutual fund of my own choosing is equipped to do 403b7 accounts, and after I've checked my 403b plan to find out if there are any "surrender fees" if I make the transfer). I can do this while I am still working at my job, and without my employer's approval being necessary.

The 403(b)(7) can still only be invested in mutual funds. Does anyone know if it is possible to roll the 403(b)(7) account into an IRA while I still have the job so I could invest in stocks?
