Q. I am exploring the idea of retiring from the postal service as a CSRS with 32 years at age 55. Can I just leave my money in the TSP? Some answers I read say you can keep it in, but I have also read that I have to withdraw it when I retire. I prefer to leave it and not touch it for at least 10 years. So what is it?
A. You can, and should, leave your money in the TSP until you have to begin withdrawing it -– usually at age 70 1/2.
