Break in Service: Less Than 31 Days

 

If you separate from the Federal Government or the uniformed services and then are reemployed by the Federal Government with a break in service of less than 31 full calendar days, you are not eligible to withdraw your TSP account.


Break in Service: 31 Days or More

 

If your break in service is 31 or more full calendar days, you are eligible, but not required to withdraw your TSP account. If you wish to withdraw your account, your withdrawal request must be received and paid while you are still separated from service.


If you began receiving monthly payments from the TSP after you separated, those payments will stop if you are subsequently rehired. If you are receiving annuity payments, they will continue.
