Q: I was in federal service for three years and contributed to the Thrift Savings Plan. I left federal service more than five years ago, but I still have money in my TSP account, all in the G Fund. It has grown over the past five years by several thousand dollars despite the fact that I have not put any money into the account in those five years. Is there a way I can contribute to TSP even though I am no longer in federal service and have not contributed any money to the fund recently?
A: Yes, you can transfer eligible balances from individual retirement accounts and other employer-sponsored retirement plans into your TSP account.
