Spousal rights


Q. I have retired under FERS from the U.S. Postal Service. I was single when I retired; now I am married. When I decide to withdraw monthly payments from my TSP account, will my wife have to sign anything?

A. It will depend upon a number of factors. Visit www.tsp.gov and review forms TSP-70 and TSP-77 to see which requirements will apply to your situation.
