Bookmark and Share

Q. I am a civilian employee. I have FERS and the Thrift Savings Plan. Is there any provision that would allow me to cash out my TSP for it to be applied directly to my federal student loans without any type of penalty?

A. Check the list of exceptions on Page 7 of the notice at Student loan repayment is not the basis for an exception to the early withdrawal penalty.
