Q: I will be retiring at the end of March 2011. I plan to roll over my TSP to an IRA. Can I roll it over before I retire? If not, how long does it takes to roll over to an IRA after I submit the form?
A: If you have reached 59 1/2 and have not already done so, you may take an in-service withdrawal and roll it over to an IRA. Otherwise, you will have to wait until you retire to roll over your account. I can’t tell you exactly how long the process will take, but I would allow two weeks, or so.
