What is a 403(b) plan?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "403(b) plan."
Some categories of employers won't offer you the chance to save for retirement in a 401(k) plan -- but only because your option has a slightly different name. It's called a 403(b) plan. It's similar to a 401(k) but is set up for people who work in government or for nonprofit organizations.
A 403(b) plan is your version of a 401(k) if your job is with a charity or a public agency.
