Q. I have $200,000 in my Thrift Savings Plan and have just been approved for disability retirement from federal service. I’ll be separated from the agency in mid-May. I am 55 years old. I am not sure whether to roll my TSP into an IRA. I don’t want to start withdrawals from my TSP, but I don’t want to pay an investment firm big brokerage fees to manage an IRA. I have no debt but have a daughter in high school for another year. What should I do with my TSP?
A. Keep it and manage it for as long as possible.
