IRA transfer into TSP


Q. I am planning on retiring within the next two years. I have a few IRA investments that I would like to transfer to the Thrift Savings Plan, but when I retire, will I be able to them leave there, or do I have to liquidate all my accounts in TSP when I retire?

A. You may continue to maintain and manage your TSP account for as long as you live. You may also transfer eligible assets into the TSP at any time, for as long as you maintain the account.
