Disability retirement, tax rates and penalties


Q. I retired on disability in March 2007. I turned 58 on May 15. What tax rate will I have to pay at 59½ years of age, and what penalty would I pay for withdrawing before then?

A. The rules can be complex, depending upon your circumstances. I suggest that you read the notice at https://www.tsp.gov/PDF/formspubs/tsp-536.pdf and then I’ll answer any remaining questions you may have.
