Could I access my TSP account in a furlough?
While in unpaid status you generally may take out a financial hardship withdrawal, if you qualify otherwise. While in general you must be in a paid status to take out a new loan, there is an exception that covers most furlough situations.

If you have an existing loan you must stay current on your payments or risk having a distribution declared with potential taxes and penalties.
