Q. I was just reading about the 59½ rule. I have a TSP account, and my date of withdrawal is Aug. 21, 2017. I don’t know what form to use. Do you have advice on how and which form to use? Also, how long will it take to access the funds? Do I need to start requesting the funds now?
A. Which form you use will depend upon your employment status and the type of withdrawal you request. Everything you need to know is available at www.tsp.gov. Extra help is available by phone.
