Rolling over IRA into wife's TSP


Q. I have an IRA with Prudential Insurance. Can I roll over my IRA into my wife’s Thrift Savings Plan account with the federal government? The money would be hers, not mine. This way, when she retires in a year or two, she’d have more money in her TSP account.

I already have a pension and don’t need that money, but my wife’s retirement will be less than mine and I’d like her to have more in her TSP.

A. No.
