Thank you for the comments.

Other than expense ratios and selection of funds, are there any other considerations to make when choosing between a rollover from an employer plan to an IRA *or* the TSP?

I noticed the following statement on the TSP site:

<<The TSP can accept funds that were distributed from a traditional IRA or an eligible employer plan (or its designated financial institution). The money that you are transferring or rolling over must be considered an "eligible distribution" under the Internal Revenue Code. If you are considering a transfer, you should check with the administrator of the plan from which you wish to transfer the money (or your tax advisor) to ensure that the funds are eligible for transfer or rollover.>>

So, now I need to ensure the funds I am transferring are considered "eligible"

Thanks, RS
