G Fund in Wife's TSP

Post by minskbelarus47 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:51 am

Wife will start RMD's w/in 1-2 years. Any reason to transfer G Fund to her Fidelity accounts.

New TSP rules SUPPOSEDLY make it easier to make transactions (to take money out).

Transfer or keep in TSP???

Are your withdrawal plans compatible with the TSP withdrawal options? If so, keep it. If not, roll it over.

I'm currently in the RMD phase with TSP. With a little planning it's not that hard.

Even under the current options, you can change the withdrawal amount every year, as long as it is at least the RMD. You need some money outside the TSP in case your expenses change during the year, but a small IRA could handle that.

The new rules have not yet been implemented.

Why would you specifically move the G fund money? Is that her only holding?
