Retirement funds from former employer


Q. I have about $100,000 in a Vanguard account from my old employer. Since I can’t contribute anything to that account, can I drop those funds into my TSP and get better return?

A. Yes, you may and probably should transfer the pre-tax part of these funds into your TSP account.
