An annuity contract that is purchased to fund a 403(b) plan should be done so for the annuity’s features and benefits other than tax deferral.  For such cases, tax deferral is not an additional benefit for the annuity.  You may also want to consider the relative features, benefits, and costs of this annuity with any other investment that you may have in connection with your retirement plan or arrangement.
