Answer: A TSP account owner is allowed to start making TSP withdrawals any time after the account owner has retired from federal service, starting 30 days after the account owner's retirement date. Readers are encouraged to ask questions related to general employee benefits---such as CSRS, FERS, the Thrift Savings Plan, tax and estate planning, insurance, Social Security and Medicare---at the "Federal Benefits Q&A" at www.FederalSoup.com. continued from page 7 became available, Treasury has used them in similar circumstance about a half-dozen times, most recently in 2011. Federal retirees and employees will be unaffected by the actions. Once the debt limit is increased, the law requires the CSRDF and G Fund to be "made whole" by restoring the suspended and redeemed funds. See the letter at: www.treasury.gov/ini- tiatives/Documents/Debt%20Limit%205-17- 13%20Boehner.pdf/ DOD to retrain recruiters Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the military services to retrain, re-creden- tial and re-screen all military recruiters and sexual assault prevention and response personnel. The move comes in the wake of allegations of criminal behavior by recruit- ers and other military service members. One of the most recent cases involves allegations of illegal behavior by an Army sergeant who served as a sexual assault prevention and response coordinator at Fort Hood, Texas. Army officials said this week that the Army Criminal Investigation Command is investigating that soldier--- who is now suspended from duties---in relation to allegations of pandering, abu- sive sexual contact, assault and maltreat- ment of subordinates. In a joint statement submitted to the House Appropriations Committee's defense subcommittee May 8, Secretary of the Army John McHugh and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno offered details on the Army's Sexual Harassment/ Assault Response and Prevention Program, under which the Army plans to add 829 full-time military and civilian sexual assault response coordinators and victim advocates, as well as 73 trainers to certify them. McHugh told the panel that the Army also is ramping up legal action against perpetrators. "The Army has increased emphasis on investigations, prosecutions and laboratory resources needed to effectively build cases in order to ensure each alleged incident is adequately investigated, and if found cred- ible, prosecuted to the full extent of the law," said the joint statement. To support that effort, according to the statement, the Army's Criminal Investigation Division has added four more criminal investigators, six military attorneys, 20 "specially trained" agents, and 30 more lab examiners.
