You can use a Power of Attorney (POA) to authorize another person to act on your behalf.

A POA may be general, giving your agent unlimited power to conduct business with the TSP.

Or, a POA may choose specific tasks that the agent can do on your behalf, such as obtain information about your account, or borrow or withdraw funds from your account. You can use the Special Power of Attorney form to designate a power of attorney.

Be sure to read the TSP booklet Court Orders and Powers of Attorney for a complete understanding of these issues, particularly the sample language for granting a power of attorney.
