Q. Are there any advantages and does it make sense to transfer my wife’s 403(b) account into my Thrift Savings Plan account before I retire? I am planning to retire in 2015 at age 55 with 33 years of service (CSRS Offset). Will TSP even allow a spouse’s account to be transferred into the TSP? She will be retiring in 2014. She is not federally employed.
A. It makes sense, and there would probably be advantages to doing this. But, alas, it’s not allowed.
