Transferring IRA to a TSP account


Q. If you roll over an IRA to a TSP account, can you use that to pay off your mortgage loan? To be more clear, use it to pay off your TSP mortgage loan, not just any old mortgage.
A: No. You must repay any TSP loan with after-tax funds. It can’t be repaid with a transfer from an IRA.
