Q. I resigned after 30 years in federal government. I’m 54 years old — would I be able to withdraw my TSP and still receive my monthly retirement when I reach my MRA of 56 years old?
A. Your TSP withdrawals have nothing to do with your FERS annuity. You will have access to your TSP account after your separation, but your withdrawals will be subject to the early withdrawal penalty unless you meet one of the exceptions listed on page 7 of the notice at https://www.tsp.gov/PDF/formspubs/tsp-536.pdf.
