Topics covered include: How to know if you have a bad 403(b); Steps to take to get a better plan; and Foregoing a 403(b) for a Roth IRA. They also discuss the fee-finding resource 403(b)compare.com; Dan shares a bit about his recent trip to England where he took in a Liverpool football (soccer) match at Anfield. Scott shares a bit about his recent trip to Hawaii.

Dan and Scott continue their discussion on the much misunderstood 403(b). Topics covered include: pre-tax 403(b) contributions; post-tax Roth 403(b) contributions; options for a 403(b) when leaving an employer; penalty-free acess to the 403(b); hardship withdrawals and what happens to a 403(b) during a divorce. Scott gives his verdict on Dan's 2001 decision to roll over his CalSTRS pension into an IRA when he left California.

Beer
This is part 2 of our podcast on the 403(b) which was recorded right after part 1 where we drank beer. While two beers in one day of recording sounds like a good idea, it probably wouldn't make a good podcast. Two beers in one sitting might make us do something really unwise like recommend high fee variable annuities.

Dan and Scott discuss the much misunderstood 403(b) retirement plan. Questions addressed include: What is it? How does it work? How can it be invested? How much can be contributed? When can it be accessed?

Beer
Dan drinks a Riverwalker IPA from Bosque Brewing of Albuquerque, NM. Scott (with apologies) drinks a Blue Moon from Coors Brewery of Conglomerateville, INC.
