Monthly annuities


Q. Now that I have retired and am over the age of 59½, can I have monthly annuities coming to me for life? How?

A. Yes. You may use your Thrift Savings Plan money to purchase a life annuity from their provider, MetLife, or any other insurance company you choose (by rolling over the money to an Individual Retirement Account). Visit and search for “annuity” or call the ThriftLine at 877-968-3778.
