Roth TSP to Roth IRA?


Q. There is a lot of information on sites regarding how to convert traditional TSP funds to a Roth IRA – and how to transfer Roth 401(k), Roth 403(b) and Roth 457(b) into the Roth TSP – but I can’t seem to find anything about transferring Roth TSP funds to a Roth IRA. I am told that this can be done (Roth to Roth), but can’t find anything definitive on it, or what form to use to do it.

A. Section XI of Form TSP-70 and section XII of Form TSP-77 allow you to provide specific instructions for transferring the Roth component of your TSP distributions into a Roth IRA.
