Withdrawing from TSP before 59 1/2


Q. If I retire after 30 years of federal service at the age of 58, can I start withdrawing my Thrift Savings Plan, or do I have to wait until the age of 59½? I do not have any part of the TSP as a Roth.

A. You will be free to withdraw your TSP assets without penalty.
