Maybe a stupid question.
Can a 457 plan have a "self directed brokerage" option using individual stocks ? My 457 plan has a Schwab self directed brokerage option ,in addition to the funds from the plan sponsor .
The "self directed brokerage" option is limited to mutual funds.
The plan sponsor does not want to even discuss it. No "Yes" and no "NO", just "DUH, we never had anyone ask".
Even if poss. , it would be an uphill battle , as the sponsor seems to think it owns the participants money
