If the TSP receives a court order against your account, it must honor it first. Under such circumstances, you will not be able to make a financial hardship or age-based in-service withdrawal (or make any other type of withdrawal) from your account until the requirements of the court order have been met.

For information about the effect of court orders on your TSP account, refer to the booklet Court Orders and Powers of Attorney. It is available on this website, through the ThriftLine, or from your agency or service.
