Q. My spouse is a U.S. Marshal retiring at age 51 with 28 years of service retiring next month.

He would like to transfer his TSP to an IRA to maximize his investment options, but is concerned if he takes immediate withdrawals that he will be forced to pay a penalty in addition to taxes.

Q. I am a 41-year-old active duty military member with 24 years of service, retiring in 15 months. I am debating whether or not to apply for a financial hardship withdrawal from my TSP. As all too common in the military, my family and I moved from our house in one location to our new duty station. The home in the first location did not sell, so we rented.
