Q. I have an outstanding Thrift Savings Plan loan, and I just turned 59. I plan to continue to work for some time. After age 59½, can I pay off this TSP loan from other personal funds, then immediately withdraw those funds from the TSP without penalty if I need them for other purposes? With no loan balance remaining, would I then be eligible to take out another TSP loan?
A. You may repay the loan, take a distribution and then take another loan, but 60 days must elapse between the two loans.
