Q. Nine years ago (in 2007) I voluntary resigned from the U.S. Postal Service after 21 years and six months of service. I’ve transferred my TSP to a regular IRA account. Am I entitled to any retirement/pension benefits? At what age can I start receiving the benefits? I am now 57 years old.
A. If you didn’t receive a refund of your retirement contributions when you left government, you’d be eligible for an annuity at age 60.
