Aspire 403(b), BUT set up through an Equitable rep in 403(b) Forum Posted October 13, 2020 · Report reply A lot of school districts have lost Vanguard as a 403b vendor. There are probably several reasons for that, but Vanguard has changed their 403b program and a number of school districts have recently added Vanguard back on to their vendor list. I suggest you join the 403bwise Facebook Group. Scott and Dan, who run the Group, are in contact with Vanguard and might be able to help you get Vanguard added to your district's 403b list. There's a sticky on this forum that will give you the link.
