  1. If you transfer some of your TSP money into a Roth IRA you will be hit with taxes. It may not be a good idea to do that unless you are in a very low tax bracket and have a very good reason for preferring a Roth IRA over a traditional IRA. If the ‘private company’ is offering low cost (expense ratio) index funds similar to the TSP, it may be a good idea but if said company is pushing managed mutual funds and or with high expense ratios and loads (A, B, C shares) then you’re in trouble.
