For those considering a TSP withdrawal, one of the key things to do is select and fill out the correct form based on what kind of withdrawal you are planning to make. The Thrift Savings Plan has different forms for all the different types of withdrawals. Here are a listing and brief summary of some of the most commonly used TSP withdrawal forms.

TSP-70 (Request for Full TSP Withdrawal) – This form can be used to request an immediate withdrawal of your entire vested account balance after the agency that employed you confirms to the TSP that you are separated from Federal service.

TSP-77 (Request for Partial TSP Withdrawal) – This form can be used after you are separated from Federal service to request a one-time partial TSP withdrawal of $1,000 or more.

These two are the most commonly used TSP withdrawal forms. The TSP-70 ends your participation since you are making a full and immediate withdrawal of the entire vested balance. However, there are many other forms which you may need before or after you fill in the TSP-77.

 Other Commonly Used Tsp Withdrawal Forms

TSP-73 (Change in Monthly TSP Payment Amount) – Use this form if you are already receiving monthly payments, but need to change the payment amount.

TSP-75 (Age-Based In-Service TSP Withdrawal Request) – Use this form if you are age 59 and a half or older, still a federal employee, and want to make a withdrawal.

TSP-76 (Financial Hardship In-Service TSP Withdrawal Request) – Use this form to request a financial hardship withdrawal while still employed.

TSP-79 (Change From Monthly TSP Payments to Final TSP Payment) – Use this form if you are receiving monthly payments but now want a single lump sum amount as a final payment.

TSP-20 (TSP Loan Information) TSP loans are not technically withdrawals, but it’s still money you’re getting from your account. So if you need a loan, use Form TSP-20.
