TSP withdrawal penalty?


Q. I will be a 56-year-old CSRS employee with 33 years in service and 2,842 hours of sick leave. Since I contributed to the Thrift Savings Plan and plan on doing a one-time complete withdrawal, will I incur a large tax penalty?

A. If you retire at age 56, you will not be subject to penalty for withdrawing money from your TSP account.
