I just want to stress again that I don't really know about the FERS system. Hopefully, someone else will answer you or call OPM.
Thanks...that would make a BIG difference if the TSP money is considered unearned . I don't know how they would treat that TSP deferred tax money. It is
money that I earned......just to be put off until later to pay the taxes and use it. I really don't want to call OPM again. Just going through a problem with them. They gave me $500 a year ago for no reason. They figured it out and wanted it back. I paid it back in August. Since then I have had 3 people tell me the problem has been solved. But.....come on, it's the Govt......they are still taking the money out and they that they will pay it back to me in June. Yeah......
