Q: I’m retired as of May 31 2015. In July 2015 I transferred most of my TSP account into an IRA (UBS financial). Since I still have a TSP account, can I move the IRA money back into my TSP account? If so, can it be done this year? I heard I would have to wait 2 years before I could do that (so says a TSP representative). Would you agree with the rep on the 2 year wait? Any more info on this subject would be appreciated.

A: Yes. You may move eligible money from an IRA account directly into the TSP any time you like. I don’t know of any 2 year restriction.
