Tax Sheltered Annuity 403(b) Information

What is a TSA?

The 403(b) plan, often referred to as a tax-sheltered annuity (TSA), was created in 1958 specifically to give teachers and employees of other nonprofit organizations the opportunity to save money on a tax-deferred basis. It's like the 401(k) plans that are available to private-sector workers but with fewer regulatory controls.

On January 1, 2006, a new savings feature became available to TSA or 403(b) plan sponsors as an option for plan participants—the Roth TSA. Now TSA contributions can be before-tax or after-tax (Roth) or a combination of the two.
