Q: I plan to retire from the Postal Service on May 31. I have 600 hours of annual leave and will receive a nice terminal leave check. Is there a way to have the terminal leave check deposited into my TSP account instead of coming directly to me after taxes have been withheld?
A: No, there isn’t. Lump-sum payments for unused annual leave aren’t made until after an employee has retired, and retirees can’t make deposits to the Thrift Savings Plan.
