The FLEOA Legislative Machine prevailed with the hard-fought passage of H.R. 2146 (TSP bill). On June 29th, the FLEOA-initiated TSP bill, Defending Public Safety Employees' Retirement Act, was signed into law. Thanks to the leadership of Rep. Reichert who introduced the bill, those under the law enforcement retirement system will now be able to access their TSP at age 50 without incurring the IRS’ 10 percent penalty. This allows federal law enforcement officers to be on par with their state and local counterparts who are also eligible to retire at age 50.
