Unlocking retirement funds could get easier for federal law enforcement officers. Current law means officers can’t access their TSP until they are eligible to retire. Officers sometimes can’t tap into retirement funds for up to 10 years or they’ll face a tax penalty. Reps. Dave Reicher (R-Wash.) and Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) introduced a bill to change that. Jon Adler, national president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, gives his view to In Depth with Francis Rose.
Francis Rose is the host of In Depth, which airs weekdays from 8-10 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. metro area and online everywhere. Francis has covered all three branches of the federal government as a broadcast journalist since 1998. He joined Federal News Radio in 2006, and launched In Depth in 2008 as a daily show focused on connecting federal executives to the information they need to do their jobs better.
