Moving funds from IRA to TSP


Q.  You suggest in one of your responses that you can move funds from your IRA to the TSP. What are the limitations and rationale for doing so?

A. The money must be all pretax money – no nondeductible contributions. The rationale is that you will enjoy fully diversified, nonoverlapping investment funds at ultra-low cost, and the G Fund. Using these funds will enable you to implement an investment strategy that will produce superior risk-adjusted expected rates of return.
