TSP loans, hardship withdrawals hit 10-year high last year

More Thrift Savings Plan participants withdrew money from their accounts early in 2013 than in any other year over the past decade.

More than 14,000 of the hardship withdrawals taken last year came during the month of October, when partisan gridlock led to a 16-day government shutdown and financial uncertainty and delayed paychecks for thousands of federal employees.
