Government default and TSP rollover

Bookmark and Share

Q. I recently retired but will not be withdrawing any of my Thrift Savings Plan for a few years. I’ve considered rolling over my balance to USAA because of the possibility of a government default. Is that advisable? In the case of a government default, will my TSP balance be safe?

A. I wouldn’t do it if I were in your shoes. I’m not sure how the debt ceiling uniquely threatens your TSP account.
