Return former TSP funds to TSP?


Q. When I left federal service in 2001, I rolled over my Thrift Savings Plan savings to a private investment firm. Subsequently, I returned briefly to federal service and accrued enough money in my TSP account to permit me to return funds to the TSP from a private-sector financial manager. Should I do this? I am about to turn 65.

A. The TSP is best retirement investment environment you’ll find. If it were me, I’d choose the TSP over a bank or broker any day.
