Unfortunately, I learned that even though TSP allowed me to make withdrawals without penalty, the IRS would still penalize you if a withdrawal was made prior to reaching age 59 1/2. So nice for these folks if they can start withdrawing from their accounts at age 50 but keep in mind the IRS will still penalize you.
