Annuity supplement and TSP withdrawals


Q. If I retire at age 60 with 20 years of service, I will be eligible for the annuity supplement along with my annuity. Can I choose to take TSP withdrawals to get me to full retirement age and then stop them until I am required to take them at 70½?

A. You may not stop monthly distributions from your TSP account, once they have begun, but you may reduce fixed monthly payments to as little as $25.
