What you need to know about transferring funds from a Thrift Savings Plan

  • A Thrift Savings Plan is a tax-qualified retirement plan for United States civil service employees and retirees as well as for members of the uniformed services. Call your plan administrator to determine if a transfer of funds is permitted. The trustee to trustee transfer is not a taxable event. Unlike an IRA transfer, the TSP trustee will accept instructions only from the account owner, YOU. In some cases, you will need to have the transfer paperwork notarized. Once the transfer is initiated, please allow two to three weeks for the funds arrive to your new Self Directed IRA.
