Q. I am 60 years old and was wondering whether I can open a TSP Roth IRA in addition to my TSP Traditional IRA that I started 22 years ago, and withdraw from it in approximately two years without any penalty when I plan to retire and start withdrawing my TSP. What are your thoughts?
A. This could create a problem. See the explanation of the rules covering this, beginning on the right side of Page 1 of the notice at https://www.tsp.gov/PDF/formspubs/tsp-536.pdf.
