It’s not quite Shakespearean, but for federal employees it’s an important question: To cash out a Thrift Savings Plan or to not cash out?

There are both benefits and drawbacks to cashing out a TSP, and Tammy Flanagan, the senior benefits director for the National Institute of Transition Planning, discussed both on In Depth with Francis Rose.

Flanagan also discussed buying an annuity from a private company, the risks involved and why it seems like an alluring option to people right now.
