403b Retirement Programs
A 403(b) plan is a retirement savings tool that is available to millions of employees of nonprofit corporations, schools and churches.
Similar to 401(k) plans, which are available to employees of private-sector companies, 403(b) plans allow individuals to make salary deferral contributions that are usually limited by regulatory caps. Contributions are made with pre-tax money, and grow tax-deferred until the money is withdrawn.
Withdrawals taken before age 59 1/2 generally face a 10% penalty plus tax, with a few exceptions. Withdrawls taken after age 59 1/2 are penalty-free.
