I will turn 59 1/2 on 30 Nov 2013. I am eligible to retire from Civil Service (DOD) via VERA 13 Dec 2013. This is my plan and I welcome any advice:
I planned on staying active until the middle of Jan 2014 for these reasons:
- I want to take $100k from my TSP account to fund the business I started last year
- I don't want the 100k to reflect on my 2013 earnings
I plan on requesting the money on 2 Jan 14 to ensure it is not tied to my 2013 earnings.
Any alternatives/advice is welcomed.
P.S. I will be hiring a CPA to guide my money decisions for the business. Obviously, money management is not my strong suit.
