Can non-spouse beneficiaries of an employer-sponsored 403(b) TSA plan convert inherited TSA funds to inherited Roth IRAs?  

Inherited plan funds can be converted via DIRECT rollover (i.e. not a 60-day rollover) to a properly titled inherited Roth IRA. There are certain requirements that must be met. The beneficiary must inherit the plan funds as a named beneficiary, not through the estate or a non-qualifying trust. The funds must go as a direct rollover from the plan to the inherited account; they cannot be made payable to the beneficiary. Any required distributions from the plan are not eligible for rollover and should be paid out from the plan first.
