Q. When I turn 70½ in October 2017, I will still be working. Do I not need to take a 2017 TSP required minimum distribution if I continue to work? If I choose to retire on Dec. 25, 2017, (a nice Christmas present),will I have to take a TSP RMD for 2017?
A. Yes. Your first TSP RMD will be due for the calendar year in which you are both (1) age 70½ and (2) separated from federal employment.
