FoolMeOnce:<<My research indicates that if I convert to a Roth, that a rollover of the Thrift Savings Plan funds would NOT be permitted. If I decide that the Roth conversion makes sense can an additional regular IRA be established to receive the proceeds of a rollover from my Government plan?>>If I understand your post (& the laws!) correctly, it's true that a 401K cannot be converted directly into a Roth IRA. However, as the second part of your your post quoted above indicates, it's perfectly legal to use a Traditional IRA as a conduit account. IOW, rollover the TSP into a Trad. IRA & then convert that money to a Roth. You don't have to open a new account to do this, just leave some token amount of money in the account after the first Roth conversion. Or, talk to your custodian, maybe they'll allow the account to exist in a dormant state, cash-free standing by for your retirement & TSP rollover.ChrisPS- It's PixY! ;-)
