The Internal Revenue Service issued final regulations for 403(b) plans in July of 2007. The new rules make 403(b) plans look more like 401(k) plans; however, there are still important differences between 403(b) and 401(k) plans.

We have prepared an in-depth discussion on the "universal availability" requirement as it impacts an employer's 403(b) plan.
