Q. I questioned a Thrift Savings Plan representative regarding the matched and unmatched funds from their agency, and they told me due to the fact that I withdrew my funds upon departure, I was not entitled to those contributions they made on my behalf. I thought the TSP funds, whether contributed by me and/or the funds, as well as the interest would be given to me after the vested time frame. How would I go about receiving those funds if they indeed are due to me?
A. Matching contributions belong to you in any case, and so do the unmatched agency contributions if you have met the vesting period requirement.
