Hello all!
I just recieved my schools list of companies i can use for my 403(b). Rather limited names. TIAFF/CREF and Fidelity are their and five pages of unknown or unimpressive companies from a fund perspective.
At the end of the fifth page it simply states "#457 plan-Deferred Compensation". What is a 457 plan? Is it as good as a 403(B)?
I have read some fair things about T/C in 403(b) situations, has anyone utilized them. Vanguard , of course is not offered here. (Evidently, it is the rather crazy Calfornian "Hold Harmless" paper that Vanguard and some others will not sign that stops their participation)
Thanks for any light you may shed for this new Fool.
