Buyouts and TSP loans


Q: There is talk going around about a buyout for those eligible for early out retirement. I am eligible for early out retirement. Would the buyout be offered to someone who has a TSP loan? I know that a TSP loan must be paid off by time of retirement, and this is a plan that I would use (the buyout) to pay off the TSP loan.

A: Retirement buyouts are not contingent upon TSP loan status.
