Rolling over TSP loan balance into IRA


Q. Can I roll over the balance of my Thrift Savings Plan loan to an IRA at retirement and keep making loan payments? I am trying to delay the impact of the entire balance being counted as income on my 2012 income tax (assuming I am retiring in August 2012).

A. No. Loans are not permitted from an IRA.
