IRA conversion to TSP


Q. I am a federal employee contributing to the Thrift Savings Plan. I have a traditional IRA, with a large brokerage firm, which I no longer contribute to. Would it make sense to transfer the IRA to TSP and possibly a Roth?

A. The TSP is the best investment environment you’ll find, so you should maximize its use.
